Creating School and Mental Health Partnerships
The New York State Office of Mental Health has created two documents to help schools understand the child mental health care system and to encourage relationships with community based providers to provide mental health services in schools.
The MHANYS network of affiliate members is committed to fostering relationships with schools. Our members provide an array of services, including counseling, peer support, advocacy, referrals and family engagement. Contact information for members of our affiliate network is available HERE or contact one of our Regional Representatives to learn more.
The Coalition for Community Schools and the National Association of School Psychologists outline strategies that characterize a strong school community partnership that supports the mental health and well-being of students, families and the entire school community.
