New Report & Webinar: Strengthening DC School Behavioral Health System and Enhancing Equity
On March 29, 2022 the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools, in partnership with the Stakeholder Learning Community (SLC), hosted a webinar on our shared work. Slides are available here.
Speakers shared the SLC’s collaborative efforts to advance and improve our school behavioral health system for children and families in the District of Columbia. Participants learned about how community members and leaders were directly engaged in these efforts in order to understand school behavioral health system from various perspectives, and how participatory approaches were used to develop and prioritize solutions.
