Mental health promotion efforts for children include creating supportive school, home, and community environments. For this to be optimized, a myriad of universal mental health promotion strategies (Tier 1), targeted mental health prevention and early intervention services (Tier 2), and individualized mental health treatment (Tier 3) must be systematically implemented. This course will review best practice guidelines for mental health and educational systems integration while reviewing model Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 mental health programs in schools. This course will offer the opportunity to increase competence, understanding, and skills related to school-based mental health endeavors through a public health framework.


  • Identify key strategies for mental health-education systems integration and advantages for both systems.
  • Describe examples of model mental health promotion and prevention, targeted early intervention, and treatment programs in schools.
  • Identify how chronic health conditions impact academic functioning, school performance, and behavioral and socioemotional health.
  • Identify opportunities to improve interprofessional collaboration and overcome barriers that may influence collaboration practices.
