Across the education, public health, and human and social services arenas, there has been renewed interest in bringing agency representatives together to work on the promotion of student mental health and wellness. When effective, it is believed that collaboration among agencies can build cross-system partnerships, improve referral processes and effective use of resources, increase access to services, enhance professional development and the quality of service provision, and ultimately improve child and family outcomes. As part of the evaluation of activities funded under Proposition 63, researchers from SRI International and the RAND Corporation evaluated the development, quality, and effectiveness of collaboration among both the Student Mental Health Policy Workgroup (SMHPW) and county consortia. This report focuses on findings from collaboration surveys; early findings from key informant interviews are available in a separate report titled, "California K-12 Schools and Communities Collaborate to Support Student Mental Health." [For "California K-12 Schools and Communities Collaborate to Support Student Mental Health," see ED561166.]
