The WV ESMH Initiative exists so that every student in West Virginia can benefit from a school environment that supports social and emotional well-being to achieve his or her full potential. Schools, families, and strategic community partners assume a shared responsibility to provide mental health support for all students. ESMH includes prevention, early intervention, and treatment that are naturally integrated into the school day, so students do not have to leave school to get the support they need. This spotlight will help you understand ESMH, determine if it is in your local school, and how to best help students benefit.
Presenter: Tiffany Pittman – School Mental Health Coordinator, School Health Technical Assistance Center, Division of Community Health, Marshall University School of Medicine
