April 10, 2022


The HEART Collective—a group of leaders in education, healthcare, and lived experience advocacy in New England—developed a list of best practices for collaborations on school-based mental health services and systems between schools and healthcare centers, mental and behavioral health agencies, community-based organizations, and other entities, using the Childhood-Trauma Learning Collaborative’s Compassionate School Mental Health Model as a foundation. These recommendations help enhance collaborations to ensure that they are trauma-responsive, strengths-based, and equity-focused.
