Synopsis: This presentation will describe challenges and lessons learned in an NIMH-funded study conducted by the New York State Office of Mental Health to understand the ways in which children access mental health services through public schools. NYC Special Education School District is serving as a pilot site for this study. The study aims to adapt and pilot: (a) a measure of school readiness to adopt mental health services, and (b) a theory-driven empowerment and engagement intervention for improving schoolsÕ readiness to adopt mental health services. Preliminary data will be presented.
