Mental Health and School-Based Health Centers. Guidebook.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
This guidebook consists of three parts. The first part is an introductory overview focusing on where mental health facets of school-based health centers (SBHC) fit into the work of schools. The second part is made up of three modules, each containing a set of units and resource aids focusing on day-by-day SBHC operational considerations and concerns related to the following: approaching the problem of limited resources not only as one of fundraising but as a major reason for integrating center activity with school and community efforts; specific facets of working with students who come to the center; and approaching evaluation as a process of getting credit for work done by school counselors. The third part is a coda that highlights ways to and benefits of integrating the resources available for addressing barriers to student learning into a comprehensive, integrated approach. A glossary of key terms, acronyms, and laws is provided. (MKA)
