Director, Indiana School Mental Health Initiative
Meet the Indiana School Mental Health Initiative Staff
The Indiana School Mental Health Initiative was created in 2017 in response to increasing concerns and questions about the mental health status of our students, both with and without disabilities, in our public schools. While we know there are many individuals of all ages and systems impacted by mental health challenges, this project focuses on schools since that is where the majority of Indiana youth can be found.
The staff of Indiana School Mental Health Initiative (ISMHI) work alongside school districts and their community partners. We provide resources, training, and advocacy to build capacity to promote the social, emotional, behavioral, mental, and physical health of Indiana’s school-age children and youth with the goal of increasing school engagement and improving educational and life outcomes.
