The purpose of this course is to build capacity of frontline interdisciplinary school personnel to address the mental health needs of children and youth in schools by embedding strategies throughout the day using a multi-tiered approach. Participants will learn how to implement Every Moment Counts model programs and embedded strategies (www.everymomentcounts.org). Emphasis is on knowledge translation and implementation of evidence-based mental health promotion and prevention strategies within a Community of Practice (CoP). Individuals can take the course and will be prepared to implement their own CoP if they choose.
This course was developed by the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network with funding by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in collaboration with Every Moment Counts.
