“This is a recording of a three-part virtual learning series that focused on understanding the social determinants of health and education, exploring opportunities to use systems of care principles to enhance health equity and collaboration, and leveraging the strength and resilience within the communities we serve through strategic and culturally responsive partnerships.
Primary Audience for Series:
School-based mental health professionals (school social workers, school counselors, school psychologists)
Community-based mental health providers (counselors, social workers, clinical directors)
Education leaders (state, district, county school administrators)
The final session of the series built upon the terminology and principles learned to uplift sustainable partnerships with caregiver, student, and community stakeholders. We celebrated community and caregiver partnerships as an indicator of strength and resilience; we honored the various cultural, spiritual, and community values as the foundation of success.
- Identified pride and pressure points that obstruct and promote effective community-school-caregiver partnerships.
- Explored essential elements of culturally responsive partnerships that champion student/caregiver voice and choice
- Connected and reflected with peers to apply lessons learned to CARE Coalition initiatives and individual practices
