This practice group is a conduit for families, researchers,
administrators, and practitioners to find common interests and practices
related to SMH and PBS. PBS approaches are designed to prevent
problem behaviors by proactively altering the environment before
problems begin and concurrently teaching appropriate behavior.
School-wide positive behavior support systems support all students
along a continuum of need based on the three-tiered PBS prevention
model. SMH can be thought of as a framework of approaches
that promote children’s mental health by emphasizing prevention
programming, positive youth development and school-wide
approaches. These approaches call for collaboration among mental
health providers, educators, families, related service providers and
school administrators in order to meet the mental health needs of all
students. By working collaboratively, this practice group seeks to
clarify the relationship between PBS and SMH in order to promote
seamless practice at the local level.
