- Providing training to detect and respond to mental health challenges and crisis in children and young adults; and
- Increasing access to behavioral health supports for children, youth and families.
Increasing Skills to Identify and Respond to Signs of Mental Health Problems in School Age Youth - Statewide resources and trainings available to school staff and community partners raise awareness of the mental health needs of youth and how to intervene.
