Community Programs in the School of MedicineTitle: School Mental Health Community of Practice
Description: The Center for School Mental Health along with the IDEA Partnership have helped to build and are providing ongoing support to a National Community of Practice that includes federal agencies, federal technical assistance providers, national organizations and state agencies. The community includes decision-makers, practitioners and consumers. It includes representatives from mental health, general education, special education, and family organizations. The focus of the national community is bridging the differences across education and mental health to support youth. To pursue that work with our partners in the community, 12 practice groups have been created: Education; Connecting School Mental Health and Positive Behavior Supports; Learning the Language - Promoting Effective Ways for Interdisciplinary Collaboration; Child Welfare and School Mental Health; Family-School-Community Partnerships; Improving School Mental Health for Youth with Disabilities; Social, Emotional, and Mental Health in Schools; Connecting School Mental Health with Juvenile Justice and Dropout Prevention; Quality and Evidence-Based Practice; Psychiatry and Schools; School Mental Health for Military Families; Youth Involvement and Leadership.
Baltimore City Public School System Staff and the larger community are all able to participate in the National community of Practice and its practice groups.
