NTTAC Event: School Based Services Policy Learning Forum
What: This two-part, virtual learning series focuses on policy foundations and implementations as a tool to advance the goals of Project AWARE and school mental health systems change initiatives. Each session is 90 minutes.

Why: Creating sustainable changes to school mental health systems is and was a cornerstone of Project AWARE nationwide programming and tandem school mental health initiatives. Learning how to translate the creative, innovative, and solution-focused work of AWARE and other initiatives from the local to the state level into long-lasting culture change is fundamental. One way to do that? Policy.

How: The two-part series format will be structured dialogue between school mental health policy experts, state and district/local leaders.

Knowing that the time zones between the Pacific Islands and the East Coast are wide and vast, we’re offering two versions of both conversations twice in one day so that you have a choice for what works best for your calendar and where you live. Round B will be a repeat of Round A.
