The Center is partnering with the University of Missouri for the evaluation of the Montana implementation of PAX Good Behavior Game. PAX is an evidence-based program consisting of behavioral health strategies delivered by teachers in the K-5 classroom setting. It promotes self-regulation, mental health, social and emotional learning, and substance use prevention, among other benefits.

The Center’s role is not only to evaluate the effectiveness of this program in Montana classrooms but also to support teachers, schools and communities to sustain PAX for more peace, productivity, happiness, and health.
