Rutgers Center for Comprehensive School Mental Health (Rutgers-CCSMH) offers training and technical assistance to support the development, enhancement, and sustainability of comprehensive school mental health systems in schools, districts, and state education agencies. We have expertise in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Comprehensive School Mental Health (CSMH), the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF), and school evidence-based interventions. Our goal is to bridge the gap between theory and practice by partnering with schools to support the whole child with academic success and social emotional well-being.
