Mental Health

Join the International Bullying Prevention Association (IBPA) for the webinar “Student Mental Health and Wellness” on Thursday, December 1 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET. Research shows that meeting mental health needs in the classroom and at a schoolwide level can help address other problems related to truancy, behavior problems, substance abuse, school violence, and other issues.

On October 17, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) launched the Police-Mental Health Collaboration (PMHC) Toolkit, an online resource that will help law enforcement agencies work with mental health providers to respond to people with mental illnesses effectively and appropriately. The toolkit builds on the real-life experiences of law enforcement officers to offer best practices, data, sample procedures, checklists, and other tools to help agencies plan, implement, train, manage, and measure PMHC programs.
