Schools are in the position of ensuring that school mental health efforts are appropriately staffed by multidisciplinary teams who have effective communication and collaboration practices. Many schools have teams that meet to discuss and strategic about student mental health issues. Schools may have one team devoted to the full continuum of mental health supports (mental health promotion to early intervention and treatment) or they may have multiple teams that address different parts of the continuum (e.g., school climate team, student support team, Individualized Education Program team, intervention/tertiay care team, Tier 2/3 team, any other team that addresses student mental health concerns).
