This paper describes an innovative intervention model for promoting mental health and positive social adjustment for youth with emotional or behavioral disorders (EBD) in San Diego. More specifically, it highlights a unique partnership between several program divisions within the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD), namely, the Mental Health Resource Center (MHRC) and the Emotional Disturbance Program (ED) and also includes research and evaluation consultation from the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC). This collaborative service model was developed to expand and standardize evidence-based interventions for students in self-contained special education ED classrooms in order to improve their academic and social outcomes.
