In high-poverty communities of color, opportunities for children, youth, and families to easily access consistent, relevant, high quality, and evidence-based clinical supports are scarce. By leveraging available resources, making smart Investments, and working in coordination with community partners, schools and districts are uniquely positioned to deliver comprehensive supports to children, youth, and families. As behavioral health disparities widen, the time is now to expand and integrate clinical and evidence-based supports into our public school systems. These tools and resources can help support this effort.
