Howard County SMH Program

The Howard County School Mental Health Program (HCSMHP) provides evidence-based mental health interventions, intensive case management and family support for students at Bollman Bridge Elementary with the aim of helping students remove barriers to learning. The HCSMHP also provides training and consultation for school staff, crisis intervention, and an array of prevention activities for students and their families. The HCSMHP has been in existence since December 2013, and is made possible through a partnership involving the Howard County Health Department, the Howard County Public Schools, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine (Child and Adolescent Psychiatry).
