Promoting mental well-being for all students and staff

Prioritizing mental health is important for students to be able to learn effectively; it's also a key component that helps staff teach and support learners every day. The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) has compiled resources and information for students, families, and schools that keep mental health supports top of mind. 

Children and Youth Behavioral Health Initiative School-Linked Partnership and Capacity Grant

The statewide multi-payer, school-linked fee schedule is a new way to fund school-based behavioral health services for children and youth in California. It establishes a specific set of behavioral health services and rates at which Medi-Cal and commercial insurance plans are required to reimburse LEAs, public institutions of higher education, and other school-affiliated providers.

Approximately $19 million in grant funding is available for San Diego County LEAs to build capacity to participate in the network.
