Center for School Behavioral Health Collaborative Meeting


Please join us for our January meeting of the Center for School Behavioral Health Collaborative. 


At our first meeting in 2017, we will hear from Donna Bahorich, Chair of the Texas Board of Education, and Juliet Stipeche, Director of Education for Mayor Turner at the City of Houston.  Donna and Juliet will share their insights into what the new year will bring for education and student mental health on both a local and statewide level.  PLEASE COME PREPARED WITH YOUR QUESTIONS!  We have allocated more time than usual at this meeting so we can have a dialogue with our guest presenters about important and pressing issues in student mental health.


The Center works collaboratively with school districts, public and nonprofit child-serving organizations, institutions of higher learning, community stakeholders including advocacy groups, students and parents to develop and implement projects and policies that promote the well-being of school-age children, prevent the downward trajectory of untreated behavioral health concerns, and appropriately address the needs of children with behavioral disorders, as well as the needs of children that have experienced trauma. The Center promotes participatory research to incubate innovative models addressing the behavioral health needs of school-age children in an integrated manner, and advocates for the implementation of sensible public and school policies to close gaps in services and eliminate constraints that exacerbate the behavioral health needs of students.
