- Conducting a mental health needs assessment of the entire student body

- Analyzing patterns and trends to identify risk factors and common needs

- Using the needs assessment to plan and implement mental health service programs that respond to identified needs

It provides usable information on how to get administrative buy-in for implementing coordinated, proven prevention/intervention practices. Rich with Web connections and references, it can serve as a textbook, a practitioner's workbook, and as a tool kit for implementation."

"I would like to see this book in the hands of every practitioner in the country! It represents where school psychology needs to go in order to meet the increasingly complex needs of students and families and to create learning environments that remove barriers to student achievement."

"Uses a wealth of studies and research to offer both formal and informal methods for defining and prioritizing a school's mental health program. School administrators will find this book a winner to developing a mental health program that addresses all the issues."
