Tell Us More About You

Currently, Iowa has a very ad hoc approach to school mental health with a variety of agencies and entities doing amazing work, but lack of an organized system to maximize on best practice

as well as communication and understanding. The intention of this opportunity is to bring together a large number of diverse stakeholders, beyond just decision makers, to have a better understanding of what school mental health in Iowa looks like, what is currently being done, assess target goal areas, develop a sustainable statewide action plan, and to create an ongoing community of practice to progress the school mental health work. 


We are excited to launch a teacher appreciation campaign with ecards! In an uncertain, hectic, and scary year, our educators are on the frontlines. Often underappreciated, we want to make sure they are feeling the love this year! Click on the link below to see our choices of FREE ecards to send to your teachers, school admins, support staff, and others!

We LOVE Teachers!
