Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) 201: When School Mental Health is Integrated Within an MTSS - What's Different

ISF enhances multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) by integrating student mental health and wellness into the existing structures. It engages a broader range of partners, involves a wider scope of data, and expands interventions to address mental health.

This webinar will be led by Susan Barrett, contributing author for the ISF Fact Sheet series. She will be joined by school district and system-based ISF practitioners from the Northwest and Pacific Southwest regions, Tawni Barlow (Washington State) and Natalie Sedano (California). Presenters will share their ISF implementation challenges, celebrations, and lessons learned or learning.



  • Learn how to establish an integrated ISF leadership team
  • Understand the foundational steps to establish ISF at the school or district level
  • Define the process of evaluating potential evidence-based practices for inclusion in schools
  • Discuss implementation challenges, solutions, and innovations with ISF practitioners
