Speaker: John Crocker, M. Ed., Director of School Mental Health & Behavioral Services, Methuen Public Schools

Description: Attendees will be provided an overview of how mental health screening was piloted and scaled-up across the district of Methuen Public Schools. Practical strategies that have yielded successful implementation of mental health screening over the past five years will be offered to attendees, including the use of online screening practices and a passive consent policy. The use of data to 1) identify students who may require services, 2) aid in progress monitoring, and 3) evaluate the efficacy of Methuen's Comprehensive School Mental Health System (CSMHS) will also be discussed.
