I will open this question up at the end and give some ideas
In Indiana we just had our 2nd Whole Child Summit put on by DOE and DMHA to work on SEL and the importance of partnering with mental health providers
We currently work in 285 schools in Indiana.
Oops, didn’t send to everyone the first time! www.childrensmentalhealthmatters.org
Have to have the school admin on board or it will go no where
Thank you Tiffany, we will include that in the follow up email as well
We encounter that difficulty as well when trying to partner with new schools. If we don't get the superintendent on board it usually does not work
FYI, I recently wrote a white paper about workforce shortages on behalf of the TN Association of Mental Health Organizations. Here is a link in case it has helpful info for others’ purposes (TN focused, but similar analysis could be done for other states): https://www.tamho.org/uploads/pdfs/All-hands-on-deck.pdf
Thank you Elliot, I will make sure that it is included in the follow up as well
Some schools can’t wait for training, others are hands off...’we got this’ attitude. Iowa Governor is a great ally for Children’s Behavioral Health which is wonderful.
We have also partnered with Daycare Centers and Preschools to identify children earlier as well as work with the parents early on on parenting skills
We have a lot of success with public libraries with our awareness efforts and in sharing resources. Some have also trained in MHFA.
we do use nurturing parenting
A pedestrian in Des Moines is advocating for ACE screening at regular check ups. Certain areas are using Nurturing Hearts
In my car...sorry!!
I don’t know that answer
I sent this only to panelists earlier, but since comic books were just mentioned here is a link to one I co-wrote focused on counterfeit prescription drugs: https://issuu.com/centerstone/docs/spark_comic_august_2019/1?ff
you will get all of the invites and we will definitely cover anxiety as part of one of the webinars
