The School Mental Health Policy Map displays and links to key policies related to school mental health. Decision makers, state and local leaders, and school mental health stakeholders can use this map to better understand the school mental health policy landscape in their state and across the country. Inclusion of a policy on the map does not indicate endorsement of policies or that a policy is implemented to fidelity. In addition, statewide school mental health staff-to-student ratios are also included on the map when available.
The NCSMH will regularly update and add to this map. If you see something missing or outdated from your state in one of the categories, please e-mail the NCSMH at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Map Update.”
To help understand your own state’s school mental health landscape, we encourage state leaders to create a state account on the SHAPE System and complete the State School Mental Health Profile. Information shared will be only shared in aggregate.
