FROM PILOT TO PRACTICE
Schools are an excellent place to promote student mental health and well-being, and to identify and support those who may be at risk for social-emotional problems. And, the research is clear regarding the specific types of school-based programming that can be effective in this area. However, all too often, evidence-based practices in school mental health are introduced with enthusiasm but never reach their promise in enhancing student well-being because they are abandoned before they can provide meaningful impact. In this interactive session, key foundations for scalable and sustainable mental health promotion and prevention programming will be explored.
