Colorado Framework for School Behavioral Health Services

The Colorado Education Initiative took advantage of state and federal legislation changes to improve student behavioural health. Although barriers still persist, Colorado schools have better opportunities to achieve enhanced student and staff well-being and improved school climate and culture. The Colorado Framework for School Behavioural Health is a guide. It includes supports for prevention, early intervention and intervention for social, emotional and behavioural needs of students from K-12. The Framework includes three models of service delivery for students with high behavioural health needs.
