California Student Mental Health Implementation Guide
Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission; California Department of Education; California Mental Health Services Authority; California School-Based Health Alliance
This guide is intended to support local education agencies (LEAs) and county behavioral health departments (BHDs) as they seek to partner to deliver comprehensive, high-quality school mental health services. While the guide was developed for California, much of it is applicable to LEAs’ contexts nationwide.
The guide includes considerations for planning, as well as links to other resources and tools for building school mental health services and programs. This includes a section on equity and anti-racist approaches to student mental health.
