Educating the “whole child” is easier said than done. School administrators understand that academic growth is impacted by mental health and behavioral needs. Knowing what to do about it is a vastly different thing. We asked Dr. Isaiah Pickens to help outline a framework for supporting school-based mental health services. His mission is to help schools reconcile what they want to do for students with what they can do. This webinar will explore how schools can use targeted approaches, implementation science, and effective strategic planning to tackle the rise of behavioral and mental health needs among students.
