tilo is a progressive nonprofit organization that was founded to inspire a new reality of what’s possible for all children. Tilo staff have over fifteen years of combined experience in the fields of mental health, behavioral health, and education. Tilo is working to transform communities by strategically connecting three distinct disciplines: education, mental health, and medical health. Building on the CDC and Kaiser Permanente’s famous Adverse Childhood Experience study, research shows trauma is at the root of most symptoms such as poor graduation rates, maladaptive behavior, bullying and many others. In fact, seven of the ten leading causes of death in America are traced back to trauma, including heart disease, stroke, cancer, COPD, diabetes, Alzheimers, and suicide. As a result, Tilo was founded to look beyond symptoms and tackle the problem head on. Operating on the premise that people will do well if they can, Tilo can support in the acquisition of skill development through constructing healthy brains by using scientifically proven methods.
