Mental Health Colorado developed the School Mental Health Toolkit to increase support and resources in planning for school mental health. The Toolkit is a comprehensive framework, based on 10 best practices to help community advocates, schools, and local leaders work together to assess, identify, prioritize and fund school-based mental health services. It will show you how to promote school-based mental health and wellness programs that work. Using our Toolkit as a framework, Mental Health Colorado is committed to supporting district leaders and advocates as they implement mental health strategies in schools across the state.
Through grant funding, Mental Health Colorado is offering school mental health capacity-building grants designed to assist school districts with the ongoing implementation of the School Mental Health Toolkit’s 10 best practices. Eligible applicants are school districts, local education agencies (LEA), boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) and community partners. Community partners must be a registered entity with the State of Colorado. Districts must have completed an initial Toolkit review and planning meeting with Mental Health Colorado and must include a completed copy of the Toolkit’s Needs Assessment.
Please contact Sarah Younggren at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or to schedule your initial Toolkit introduction and planning meeting.
Please download and email your completed application, attaching your budget and Toolkit Needs Assessment to email@example.com.
