Early intervention is about providing early and timely intervention as close to the time when a student’s need emerges. Too often services are reactive and treatment-heavy with limited success. When there is a lack of screening and a weak Tier 2 system of support, many students look like they need more intensive support. This presentation will focus on how to implement effective screening to proactively detect students with a need for mental health support. In addition, educators will understand how to implement a Tier 2 system of support from beginning to end including how to match support to the root cause that explains why a student’s need exists.
