Challenges and Solutions in the Implementation of the School-Based Pathway to Care Model: The Lessons from Nova Scotia and beyond
Kutcher, Stan; Wei, Yifeng
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v28 n1 p90-102 Mar 2013
Most mental disorders often onset during the adolescent years, providing opportunities for educators, health care providers, and related stakeholders to work collaboratively in addressing adolescent mental health care needs. This report describes early implementations of various components of the School-Based Pathway to Care Model currently applied in Canada, identifies lessons learned, and suggests future directions. The School-Based Pathway to Care Model engages students, teachers, student service providers, parents/families, health care providers, and the wider community through various training programs and both formal and informal linkages between the school, community, and health providers. Preliminary evaluation of the model in whole and in part shows promising outcomes for its application in secondary schools within the wider framework of enhancing system capacity for addressing mental health needs of students. Future focus should be directed towards more rigorous research on the model and its various components. (Contains 2 figures.)
