As explained in the PrimaryGuide for the District of Columbia’s School-based Behavioral Health Expansion, “The goal of the District’s Expansion of School-based Behavioral Health is to advance a comprehensive and coordinated school behavioral health system, which is a strategic collaboration between school personnel, community mental health providers, students, and families to create a positive school culture that provides timely access to highquality, reliable supports for children, youth, and their families. Within this system, school-based teams offer a full array of trauma-informed, culturally-responsive, evidence-based tiered interventions to promote wellness, identify challenges early, and offer treatment services when necessary so that all children and youth succeed and thrive.” (3)
