Center for School Mental Health (CSMH)

CSMH Logo

The mission of the Center for School Mental Health (CSMH) is to strengthen policies and programs in school mental health to improve learning and promote success for America's youth. From its inception in 1995, the Center's leadership and interdisciplinary staff has promoted the importance of providing mental health services to children, adolescents, and families directly in schools and communities.

We continue to advance evidence-based care in schools (from preschool to college; P-16) and collaborate at local, state, national, and international levels to advance research, training, policy, and practice in school mental health. The CSMH is committed to promoting success for all students through a shared family -- school -- community agenda and co-facilitates the National Community of Practice on Collaborative School Behavioral Health.

We collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders invested in integrated approaches to reduce barriers to student learning:

  • youth and families
  • educators, health, and mental health providers
  • researchers
  • child serving agency staff
  • advocates
  • administrators and policymakers
  • community partners
