Digital Tool for Checking Students’ Emotional Wellness
Closegap is a nonprofit organization that makes it easy for schools to support the emotional health of K–12 students through daily mental health check-ins. The developmentally appropriate check-ins help youth express themselves, connect with a trusted adult, or explore self-guided social–emotional learning activities. Separate check-ins exist for prekindergarten–grade 2, grades 3–5, and grades 6–12.
Backed by evidence-based research and developed alongside students, teachers, school counselors, social workers, and administrators, Closegap makes daily check-ins fun for students, while giving educators the information they need to provide support in real time. By combining crisis and early intervention, real-time support, mental health monitoring, and a safe, digital space for emotional discovery, Closegap enables schools to easily make mental health accessible to all—for free.
