Capacity Building

The Capacity Building level includes services that are provided to teachers, administrators, school staff, and caregivers in students’ lives. Clinicians provide behavioral health training and consultation that aim to support adults' abilities to address student behavioral health needs through strengthening school-wide systems and building behavioral health knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy.

Consultation: 

Behavioral health consultation is an indirect form of service delivery in which the clinician works collaboratively with adults involved in students’ lives in order to affect change. Consultation takes many different forms, including one-on-one, small and large group, and small and large meeting facilitation and/or participation.
