School Mental Health

The Mid-America MHTTC's school mental health program works with partners in education across HHS Region 7 to improve students' access to mental health services. Our robust team of trainers have years of experience working in and with schools and districts to implement system-wide changes. School mental health was deemed a priority for our Center at its inception, ​however, through a SAMHSA supplemental award, we have been afforded more resources to devote to the cause.

Training and technical assistance is typically delivered via webinar, learning community, workshop, consultation and conference presentation. Contact us if you would like to learn more about our services.
