As part of the Safe and Supportive Learning Environments initiative launched in 2016, NTE has funded school-based mental health or Tier 3 work in 11 schools.
The schools contracted with 6 established community-based mental health agencies to provide school-based mental health services. This working paper closely examines the school-based mental health grant program in the context of current thinking and practice in this field. It draws from interviews with 60 stakeholders including district and school representatives, parents, mental health professionals.
