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. These are challenging collaborative efforts with helpful information and tools to address barriers spread out in many different places. The goal of this resource is to create a library of helpful resources and organize tools around critical topics and challenges. Through this project, we aim to generate applicable resources specific to the needs of partners to further the growth of school mental health partnerships. Each section includes an overview of the topic and a collection of related resources.
