Embedding Mental Health Promotion Strategies in Everyday Ways in Schools: Interdisciplinary Integrated Services Fostering Participation and Health (Webinar #4)
Embedding mental health services within a multi-tiered framework requires confident leadership by interdisciplinary school personnel (OTPs, PTs, SLPs, school counselors) who are knowledgeable about health (mental and physical). Legislation (IDEA, ESSA) supports the need to foster participation in activities and interactions throughout the day that promote health for all students. The evolving role of related service providers to address the participation and health needs of all students using multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) will be emphasized. Specifically, school mental health calls for the use of indigenous resources in schools (e.g. providers with knowledge and skills in addressing mental health) such as occupational therapy practitioners and school nurses in addition to traditional mental health providers. Participants will learn practical examples of how to embed activity-based multi-tiered services in schools using integrated, collaborative strategies in natural contexts (academic & non-academic) to promote positive mental health in all students with and without mental health challenges. A range of service delivery approaches will be depicted such as co-teaching in the classroom, small group interventions during lunch and recess, coaching strategies, and environment-focused intervention. Practitioners will provide specific examples of how to implement Every Moment Counts model programs and embedded strategies at the universal, targeted, and intensive levels.
