    Building and Funding a Comprehensive Multi-Tiered System of Supports for Mental Health

    Wednesday, May 15, 2024
    1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
    1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT

    Schools have become the de facto hub for student mental health supports, but educators and resources are already stretched thin! How can districts create a system to support student well-being, overcoming challenges to provide what students need?

    Join the mental health experts from Effective School Solutions to explore practical strategies and sustainable funding sources to help your district provide a continuum of care. We’ll discuss best practices for supporting student mental health within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework, and review recommended tools for streamlining this work — making it practical and sustainable for your team.


    Learning Objectives: 

    • Review the most recent data surrounding the mental health crisis
    • Discover practical strategies for creating a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework to address mental health challenges
    • Explore sustainable funding sources to maintain a robust continuum of care
