Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center School Mental Health Team Presentations:
The Northwest School Mental Health team delivered two presentations at the 2020 Virtual MTSS Fest.
- Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF): Integrating MTSS & School Mental Health
Presented by Kelcey Schmitz & Tawni Barlow
Presentation Description: ISF is a structure and process for creating one comprehensive system of social, emotional, and behavioral supports and moving school mental health from a co-located approach to an integrated approach. The presentation will focus on key messages including a single system of delivery, mental health wellness as a protective factor, measuring impact as opposed to access, and using the MTSS framework to guide an integrated approach. Medical Lake School District will share successes and lessons learned. New ISF material will be shared as well as how to access other school mental health information from the Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center.
- Implementing Social-Emotional Learning into PBIS
Presented by Susan Barrett & Tammy Bolen
Presentation Description: This session will describe ways we can use this time to build personal social emotional competencies and connections with our students. We will also discuss strategies for redesigning our systems of supports as we come back to school in the Fall. Lastly, we will highlight 2 resources that focus on strategies for adult wellness and connecting with families.|
