Section 5: Planning and Partnerships

This section covers many of the formal processes and components of creating partnerships and plans to implement school mental health initiatives. But planning and partnerships happen at multiple different levels in a school, district, region and/or county. Alameda County’s guide, “How to Start and Sustain a School Health Initiative,” provides helpful high-level strategies for partnerships that may be coming together at a regional or county level. Comparatively, the “School Mental Health Quality Guide on Teaming” provides helpful context for school district or school site teams. The section pulls together resources that may be helpful for both levels of partnerships and planning.

This section will help teams begin to identify the goals, outcomes, key activities, and resources for a school mental health initiative – both at a regional level or site level, depending on the scope of your school mental health initiative.
