UW SMART Center study on equitable delivery of mental health services in schools is seeking partners

The University of Washington’s School Mental Health Assessment and Research (SMART) Center is conducting a study on strategies to promote equitable delivery of evidence-based mental health services in schools. They are looking to partner with community-based health organizations and school districts to recruit school-based mental health clinicians and the youth they work with to participate in this study. Clinicians will receive training on evidence-based strategies, expert consultation, and continuing education credits. All participants (clinicians and youth) will receive study incentives (e.g., electronic gift cards). The study aims to learn more about effective ways of helping clinicians to equitably implement evidence-based practices to improve students’ experience with school-based mental health supports especially for traditionally underserved populations.
