Eliminating Barriers to Learning Through the Early Identification of Student Mental Health Issues
Dates: Ongoing Trainings
Location: Throughout California
The Eliminating Barriers to Learning (EBL) initiative is an innovative collaboration between the California Department of Education, Placer County Office of Education, and Kognito Interactive. Based on a training series developed by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), California’s EBL uses a train-the-trainer model. A school- or district-based team of educators attends an in-person workshop and then uses an online training simulation to develop the skills necessary to support their colleagues in better identifying and responding to student mental health needs. You can learn about and apply to attend upcoming free EBL trainings here.
