This book provides a "roadmap" for designing and implementing school psychological services for all students in a school. School psychologists will find guidelines for conducting a mental health needs assessment of the entire student body; analyzing patterns and trends to identify risk factors and common needs; and using the needs assessment to plan and implement mental health service programs that respond to identified needs. After chapter (1) Why Population-Based Services Are Essential for School Mental Health, and How to Make Them Happen in Your School (Beth Doll and Jack A.
