The significant shortage of school mental health providers in Wisconsin has historically limited access to mental health services for children and families. Moreover, the needs assessment revealed disparities related to students of color being suspended at higher rates and LGBTQ students reporting lower perceptions of safety and support at school. WI has integrated SS/HS funding with other federal funding opportunities to develop strategies to expand access to mental health services, target and reduce identified disparities for students, and also expand the notion of effectively engaging and partnering with students and families in these processes.
