"MindOH! is a socially responsible company named for that moment when a child's belief in what is and what can be come together."  Beth Carls, CEO

For over six years, MindOH! has created character-based, online computer modules that teach kids problem-solving techniques, conflict resolution and communication skills, reinforcing universally held character traits such as respect and responsibility.

Character education, in our view, should be an integral part of all learning environments, particularly in light of increased incidents of school violence, bullying, cyberspace bullying and drop-out rates among today's youth.

We're providing measured and proven evidence-based results such as:

  • Reducing in school suspension by up to 50%
  • Reducing discipline alternative school transfers up to 77%
  • Reducing drop-out rates
  • Increasing student grade point averages

Testimonials: What Others Are Saying About The Effectiveness of MindOH! 

Dr. Susan Sclafani, Former Counselor to the U.S. Secretary of Education and Assistant Secretary, Office of Vocational and Adult Education

"I think projects, programs, that give children a chance to articulate what they’re feeling, and in this case, to do it at a time when they’re finding it very hard to not be emotional about what’s happening with them is a very positive thing. I think it was very important that [the students] talked about the fact that once they had used [MindOH!], they never got in trouble again, they never had to come back and use it again. That says that it made them think about what they had done and that’s the most critical thing with middle school kids – it’s getting them to think about their actions, be more reflective about them, and here they have a tool to help them do that.”

Marvin Berkowitz, Ph.d, Sanford N. McDonnell Professor of Character Education, University of Missouri-St. Louis

"[With the] MindOH! program they open up, reflect, cool down, and are more available to eventual meaningful human to human counseling and discourse..." More >

Patricia Lankpoop, Program Administrator, NC

"I want to say that since we began using the behavioral component of MindOH!..... we have had great success. Children who are aggressive and that have difficulty communicating with adults and processing their difficulties, have had great success with the MindOH! program...it is a very effective program for children who are experiencing emotional distress as well as being unable to process their feelings with an adult.... "

Cally Robin Wolk, Parent and Educator, RI

"I work in education reform, and I tell people all the time, "schools won't be fixed until society is fixed, because the same problems are present in both." MindOH! is helping to make people whole, and from there, anything is possible. It is increasingly evident that humanity requires a human group-approach to solving our problems, MindOH! brings the human touch to life for kids."

Jean Gilstrap, M.D., Psychiatrist, Osage Beach, MO

Technology can't replace individual human contact, but these tools create breakthroughs in ways where a child becomes more comfortable, thus more open to meaningful dialogue with adults...this new and innovative way to help more children acquire a healthy self-concept."
