Title: Integrating Agendas for Mental Health in Schools into the Recommendations of the President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health (A Centers' Brief Report)

Description: This brief was prepared by the staff of the two national centers the DHHS initiative created to advance mental health in schools. The document incorporates the research, training, and technical assistance activity of both centers. It also reflects the goals of Healthy People 2010, and the ideas set forth in Bright Futures, Mental Health. Moreover, it integrates input from the wide range of stakeholders across the country with whom the centers work. As a result, this brief draws on what has been learned over many years, in many contexts, and from many sources. To download, click here.
