Section 5: Staffing & Facilities

There are many strategies a district and/or county can take to staff school mental health services. In this section, you will find a breakdown of what types of providers can be employed to provide different services and the requirements for different types of credentials, as well as sample job descriptions and training calendars.

There also needs to be considerations for where the services will take place and what type of facilities and space are needed. Some Tier 2 and 3 mental health interventions that take place in the school need confidential spaces for services and record keeping. The type of agency providing the service will help shape factors to consider.

For Medi-Cal reimbursement, you many need to consider licensing and certification requirements for sites or facilities. In the list of resources below there is a link to a guide on facility and certification requirements in order to provide Medi-Cal eligible services.
