The road map for designing and implementing effective mental health services for all students!

Studies have shown that mental wellness is a key determinant of students′ academic and developmental success, but simply addressing the problems of individual students is not enough. Increasingly, schools are turning to population-based models for providing mental health services to ensure that students maintain the psychological, social, and emotional competence needed for learning. This comprehensive guidebook demonstrates how to use this approach to effectively assess mental health needs and design appropriate prevention and intervention strategies that will benefit individual students, whole classrooms, and an entire school population.

Drawing from a wealth of current research and backed by evidence supporting the effectiveness of the population-based approach, this wide-ranging resource offers:

Formal and informal strategies for identifying and prioritizing a school′s mental health needs, as well as risk and protective factorsInsights into creating and managing a nurturing school environment, promoting psychological well-being, and preventing mental health problemsSuggestions for engaging parents in the process of fostering mental healthIntervention strategies that address significant behavioral problems, including violence, bullying, depression, and difficulty relating to peers An integrated ten-step sequence for shifting from conventional approaches that focus only on individual problems to population-based services that support all students

Transforming School Mental Health Services is the ideal resource for school mental health professionals and critical decision makers looking to optimize students′ wellness and educational performance.
