We are: a community of cross sector stakeholders that share a commitment to the advancement of early childhood, school age and adult behavioral health and wellness within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
We support: at present, children, youth, families, schools, and community partners through development of comprehensive early childhood and school-based behavioral health support systems.
We do this in order to: overcome the non-academic barriers to learning for children and youth so that all can successfully transition into adulthood.
We focus on: 1) promoting implementation and sustainability of evidenced based multi-tiered systems of supports; 2) promoting integration of evidence based programming into decision-making frameworks; and 3) fostering and leveraging articulated and robust school - community partnerships.
We will be successful when: children, youth, families, educational entities and community agencies have access to services, supports, training, technical assistance, and collaborative opportunities that ensure academic and emotional/social success for all.
