Preview

This chapter reviews the work of a community mental health team in an urban public elementary school. It provides examples of the work with administrators, teachers, parents, and students. In recounting the work of the team over 4 years, the reader is only provided with an early interim report. A great deal remains to be done. Over the next 5 to 10 years, with the principal's help, the team hopes to extend these concepts to build a school-wide culture involving everyone: students, teachers, administrators, and parents.

Keywords: mental health care; community-based clinical practice; social work practice
