Download the Toolkit

Please fill out the information below to download the PEARLS Implementation Toolkit. We use this information for tracking purposes.

Please note, we previously referred to PEARLS coaches as counselors, but changed the name to avoid confusion because counseling experience is not needed. We also encourage organizations to adapt phrases or text based on the cultural needs and preferences of their communities (e.g., using different words for depression or coach).
