The New Jersey Department of Education last week released an incredibly valuable resource, The New Jersey Mental Health Resource Guide. They shared the following information:
“This comprehensive Guide is designed to support school districts to develop, implement, and evaluate mental health supports and services using a multi-tiered system of supports. While the Guide is lengthy, we tried to incorporate some features to assist the user identify what would be most helpful to their work (i.e., detailed table of contents, icons, consistent layout of chapters, etc). In addition to containing a lot of content, each chapter also contains a summary, examples of implementation in NJ schools, hyperlinked resources, templates, and reflection questions.”
Congratulations and thank you to the many involved throughout the state in creating such a valuable, helpful resource!
