West Virginia is one of the states featured in this report from the Center for Health Care in Schools at George Washington University. The report discusses the systemic challenges to ensuring children’s access to mental health care and describes examples of success which can serve as a guide for those responsible for implementing the Affordable Care Act or other policies that strengthen children’s mental health.
Downloadable presentations, reports and other resources made available at the ESMH Annual Planning Retreat on December 10, 2012. Thanks to Sharon Stephan, Co-Director of the national Center for School Mental Health, for facilitating the two-day session.
We all share a common priority: keeping our children safe. The recent school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut has heightened our awareness of the vulnerability of our children and communities to violent actions. However, it is important that we not respond by merely addressing security in schools.
Since 2006, a steering team that includes the WV-DHHR Bureau for Behavioral Health and the WV Department of Education has studied how to improve state and local capacity for school based mental health.

Marshall University School Health and Technical Assistance Center would like to congratulate the agencies listed below on their successful application for school-based oral health services in their communities. A partnership between the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation and the West Virginia Development Office will award grants to support collaborative efforts for improving the oral health of youth through school-based/linked dental services. Onetime funding will provide a sealant program focused on 2nd, 3rd and 6th grades, a fluoride program, and referral for establishing a dental home for children without one. The data collected by this project will contribute to documenting the status of children’s oral health in the state.
