How It Works
Students complete a 2-min check-in that assesses their daily emotional well-being and pre-screens for more serious mental health challenges.
After each check-in, students practice emotion regulation activities and build SEL skills needed to self-regulate the emotions they experience daily.
Our negative emotions protocol pre-screens for students who are at risk for more serious mental health challenges and matches them with the school counselor or a licensed mental health counselor through chat.
“This data tells us exactly what social and emotional support our students need, whether it's a new curriculum, partnerships with outside organizations, or a private conversation about life. The best part is that it gives students an outlet to divulge things with their educators that they might not necessarily feel comfortable vocalizing. I've created better relationships with my students as well.”
“The ROSA app has been such a great tool to have in my classroom. I have found the interface to be incredibly sleek and user friendly, which is so helpful when I need to instruct 35+ students in a class period on how to use it. The students also love the app and will enthusiastically come into class asking to do a check in because they love it so much.”
“I enjoy using this app. The students love talking to ROSA and it gives me insight on how to respond to their emotional wellbeing on a day to day basis. I believe all teachers especially behavioral and ESS staff will benefit from what ROSA has to offer.”
The abilities to manage one's emotions, thoughts, and behaviors effectively in different situations and to achieve goals and aspirations. This includes the capacities to manage stress and feel motivation to accomplish personal and collective goals.

The abilities to understand one's own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence behavior across contexts. This includes capacities to recognize one's strengths and limitations with a well-grounded sense of confidence and purpose.
The abilities to establish health and supportive relationships and to effectively navigate settings with diverse individuals and groups. This includes the capacities to communicate clearly, listen actively, and negotiate conflict constructively.
The abilities to understand the perspectives of and empathize with others, including those from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and contexts. This includes the capacities to understand broader historical and social norms for behavior in different settings.
Students practice emotion regulation activities daily and build SEL skills needed to self-regulate the emotions they experience daily. Our activities are based on research from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and are grounded in these five emotional regulation activity domains: mindful breathing, forward-looking strategies, attention-shifting strategies, cognitive reframing, and meta-moments.
Teachers and counselors have dashboards that allow them to track daily and long-term student wellness metrics. This allows school leaders to create effective action plans that take into account students’ emotional well-being. Teachers and counselors also are able to directly chat students to provide real-time support.
Our negative emotions protocol pre-screens for students who self-report consecutive negative emotions. This allows teachers and counselors to identify students at risk for poor outcomes before they demonstrate disruptive behavior or declining performance.
Our negative emotions protocol identifies high-need student
The school counselor or our licensed mental health counselor receives a notification to connect with high-need student
High-need student receives timely support to further address serious mental health challenges and minimizes academic decline.
We work with schools to develop crisis response plans. Each plan includes training for teachers and counselors to be mental health responders and on-demand support for students through chat when they are experiencing more serious mental health challenges.
Schools start the day with insights into which of their students might struggle, who needs to be checked in with immediately, and who doesn’t require as much attention
ROSA intervenes before negative emotions significantly impact academic outcomes. Teachers and counselors learn how to respond to the highest-need students faster and more accurately
Maintains the highest privacy levels, follows district policies, complies with FERPA and HIPAA, and safely integrates with Google, Microsoft, and Clever. We use industry standard security with SSL encryption
ROSA allows every stakeholder to work together to
ensure that students get the support they need.
We prepare teachers, school staff, and parents to respond to student needs by offering workshops, professional development opportunities, and curriculum.
Negative emotions impact core brain functions that allow us to manage our attention, thoughts, emotions, and behavior, thus limiting students’ capacity to learn. ROSA helps students reduce these negative emotions by offering daily check-ins, facilitating real-time support, and offering individualized mental health support during learning.
