For many children, schools are the main or only providers of mental health services. In this visionary and comprehensive book, two nationally known experts describe a new approach to school-based mental health—one that better serves students, maximizes resources, and promotes academic performance.
The authors describe how educators can effectively coordinate internal and external resources to support a healthy school environment and help at-risk students overcome barriers to learning. School leaders, psychologists, counselors, and policy makers will find essential guidance, including:
· An overview of the history and current state of school mental health programs, discussing major issues confronting the field
· Strategies for effective school-based initiatives, including addressing behavior issues, introducing classroom-based activities, and coordinating with community resources
· A call to action for higher-quality mental health programming across public schools—including how collaboration, research, and advocacy can make a difference
Gain the knowledge you need to develop or improve your school's mental health program to better serve both the academic and mental health needs of your students!

About the Author:

Howard S. Adelman is professor of psychology and codirector of the School Mental Health Project and its federally supported National Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA. He began his professional career as a remedial classroom teacher in 1960. In 1973, he returned to UCLA in the role of professor of psychology and also was the director of the Fernald School and Laboratory until 1986. 

Review:

"The text chronicles 50 years of national policy in school-based mental health history to reveal the evolution of current models of service. It affords readers a rare glimpse at the intricately woven positions of government and advocacy agencies that result in policy shifts. The authors further challenge readers to critically review current school screening, referral, and intervention practices. In conclusion, there is a call for new directions in policy and systemic change that both restructures and enhances the role of support service personnel." -- Diana Joyce, Psychologist

"With this resource, the reader will have everything needed to design and implement a successful mental health program in a way that will benefit a diverse student population. In addition, the authors present a strong case for comprehensive integrated services that are planned and well implemented. This text is a superb resource and will make a much-needed contribution to the field. The authors are to be commended for their willingness to tackle the tough issues surrounding mental health services for all students." -- Marian White-Hood, Director of Academics, Accountability, and Principal Support

"Howard Adelman and Linda Taylor take on an issue of great import, and succeed in tackling it thoroughly. It provides any reader with a solid foundation for both knowledge in the subject matter, and also sufficiently guides the reader in his or her action plans of change. The authors should be commended for their efforts, and educational administrators should be advised to read this book, taking from it strategies and plans to suit their own students and district."--Education Review: Brief Reviews, August 2010 (12/03/2010)

"This book is a must-read for those seeking support in creating meaningful school improvement plans and valuable, comprehensive healthy school initiatives. --Lyman Goding, Lecturer, Bridgewater State College (04/07/2009)"
