  About ...

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 works 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.

Related to this initiative the Center has produced a new book entitiled Transforming Student and Learning Supports: Developing a Unified, Comprehensive, and Equitable System. (Click on title to download the complete resource.) This free resource provides a focal point to stimulate interchange and mobilize transformation. The work provides protocol frameworks for a systemic learning supports component to replace the existing marginalized and fragmented set of student and learning supports in districts and schools. It also stresses that transformation can be done by redeploying existing resources and garnering economies of scale.
