School Behavioral Health Professionals
A School Behavioral Health Professional at each school provides mental wellness awareness education, interventions, and supports to students, families, and school staff. Their work focuses on a continuum of services – Core/Universal, Supplemental and Intensive. It is recommended that the majority of their work is dedicated to Core/Universal activities to support mental wellness so that the largest number of students can benefit.
The Education, Prevention, Intervention and Consultation (EPIC) Team, in the Department of Behavioral and Mental Health, supports the SBHPs by providing onboarding, coaching, consultation and professional development for them.
The SBHP collaborates with members of the School Based Team, Mental Health Team, and other school teams so that their work enhances the Universal, Supplemental, and Intensive mental health interventions provided in the school.
