Community of Practice — School Mental Health Series

January 13, 2023

Tired of Working in Silos?

Interconnect systems (school mental health and PBIS) within an MTSS framework.

The Center on PBIS is hosting a series of Community of Practice (CoP) sessions to bring people together in an effort to explore how a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) can strengthen current efforts to support these increasing needs.

Participants will have time for learning and processing with others in this space. Team participation is highly encouraged. Participation is provided at no cost. Registration is required.

Audience

Leadership Teams hiring clinicians | Leadership Teams recruiting diverse workforces
Working from individual clinician to working within a team | Clinicians new to working with leadership teams

School districts across the country are struggling with increasing mental health, social-emotional-behavioral, and wellness needs of both students and staff. Many districts have secured additional funding to support these increasing needs. MTSS is a promising framework for organizing, integrating and allocating resources across domains (education, mental health, social emotional behavioral wellness).

We welcome you to join others from across the country to learn and be in community with practitioners, technical assistance providers, and other educational and mental health systems professionals.

Monthly Series Held From 1:00pm – 2:30pm Eastern

Discussion topics will be developed in collaboration with participants but could include changing roles, understanding roles of community providers in the schools, data collection and evaluation, and using high leverage practices across the Tiers.

How Should Our Systems Adapt to Support the Changing Role of Staff in the Current Context?

We want everyone in a system to have skills and competencies to meet the Social, Emotional, Behavioral, and Academic needs of our children and youth. If we start with that, how do we backward design our approach? How do we establish collective ground rules about what needs to change?  How do we adapt critical areas such as accreditation, licensure, certification, pre-service, professional development, funding, policies, and organizational health to meet the needs within the current context? In our next Community of Practice meeting, we will discuss both considerations for how roles might need to shift; and how executive leaders can adapt to support that shift to happen.  Please join us for this discussion.
