Center for MH in Schools & Student/Learning Supports  
Brief Overview of the Project and its Center
Brief History

The School Mental Health Project (SMHP) was created in 1986 to pursue theory, research, practice and training related to addressing mental health and psychosocial concerns through school-based interventions. To these ends, SMHP worked closely with school districts, local and state agencies, special initiatives, and organizations and colleagues across the country.

In 1995, the project established its national Center for Mental Health in Schools as part of the federal mental health in schools program.

In 2015, the Center established the National Initiative for Transforming Student and learning Supports -- see http://smhp.psych.ucla.edu/newinitiative.html.

In 2017, to more fully underscore the breadth of the work, the Center name was expanded; the name is now the Center for MH in Schools & Student/Learning Supports.
