Understanding the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) for Integrating Mental Health Supports in Schools
This webinar is hosted by the Connecting School Mental Health and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Practice Group.
The Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) is a structure and process for blending education and mental health systems through a multi-tiered structure in schools. By bringing school and community mental health providers into established school-wide systems of positive behavior supports, the ISF promotes a prevention-based continuum of mental health promotion and supports embedded in all 3 tiers of multi-tiered systems of behavioral support in schools. This webinar will describe the core features of the ISF as a blend of school-wide systems of positive behavior support and school mental health and introduce tools that can help develop the ISF in local communities. Examples of ISF implementation will also be shared. The target audience for this webinar includes all members of the IDEA PBIS/SMH community of practice and related stakeholders in states, districts and schools interested in expanding mental health services through the ISF. Opportunities for question/answer and sharing of experiences among participants will be available during the webinar. Following this webinar, Georgetown University will feature ISF a February 21st webinar featuring specific state and local examples of ISF and the Community of Practice in Pennsylvania. In April, other sites across the country will be featured in a third webinar that will help further define state and local examples of the ISF.
