Development of a Preparatory Standardized Program That Defines the Foundational Skills for Student Services

This collaborative project will identify the skills, knowledge and competencies required to support adolescent mental health (ages 12-18) through the education system, and will result in a preparatory standardized program that defines the foundational skills for student services. It will also improve navigation of the Mental Health and wellness system for students and families by confirming the appropriate referral pathways to external partners.
