Through a state partnership between the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) and the Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH) along with other agencies, we will support Conecuh County Schools, Homewood City Schools and Jackson County Schools as they create and sustain comprehensive mental health services in schools and communities for children and adolescents using the comprehensive, integrated, three-tiered (Ci3T) models of prevention (Ci3T). The Ci3T framework addresses the academic, behavioral, and social/emotional needs of students using a continuum of supports. (Lane, Menzies, & Oakes, 2010). Based on the Ci3T evaluations of student needs, students may receive additional supports from a School Based Mental Health therapist. The state agencies working with these three local education agencies expect to build a model program that will allow for expansion statewide. We expect to create a database of community services and programs that will allow the ALSDE and ADMH to better coordinate services statewide to meet the needs of all the students, families, and communities.
