School-Based Practitioners Supporting Students with Mental Health Needs in the School Environment


Session Dates

Wednesday January 19, 2022 9:00 AM - 11:15 AM - Webinar

Comprehensive school mental health systems utilize a multi-tiered framework that is grounded in universal mental health promotion efforts. To support students at risk of developing a mental health condition or with existing mental health needs, schools must consider supports and strategies for identification, intervention, and crisis response. This presentation will overview key considerations and best practices for school-based practitioners, school teams, and community partners working to meet the needs of these students and their families. National and state resources to support comprehensive school mental health efforts will be highlighted and shared.


Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the essential components of comprehensive school mental health approaches and how they align with multi-tiered frameworks.
  • List and summarize key practices and approaches for identifying, supporting, and responding to students with mental health needs in the school environment.
  • Identify at least three resources to support student mental health needs within the school environment.
