Description of Resource

Developments in quality improvement activities have advanced our understanding of successful school mental health programs and services. In this session, presenters discuss traditional strategies used to ensure high quality school-based services, offer caution about using these strategies when implementing mental health services for members of immigrant and refugee communities, and share the organizational factors shown to promote culturally responsive and effective care among new Americans.
