This guide is intended to identify and explain the public mental health funding streams in California that can support the full continuum of school-based mental health services. It should also help illustrate how schools can best leverage public mental health funding streams and community partnerships to maximize existing resources.
This toolkit – written in partnership with Fight Crime: Invest in Kids California – explores the ways in which seven counties are working collaboratively to provide school-linked mental health services, share financial resources to pay for these services, and address local issues such as truancy or recidivism by increasing access to mental health services for students.
Mental health screenings are something for all children. Just like other health checkups, mental health checkups ensure that children are maintaining optimal mental health and emotional development. A mental health screening also helps to identify issues when they do occur and much earlier before they become more serious. Mental health checkups are easy to complete online and only take a few minutes.
