Request for Proposals

The theme of this year's conference is School Mental Health: Moving Forward Together. Each year, the Annual Conference on Advancing School Mental Health brings together leaders, practitioners, researchers, and other stakeholders in the school mental health field to share the latest research and best practices. The conference emphasizes a shared school-family-community agenda to bring high-quality and evidence-based mental health promotion, prevention, and intervention to students and families as part of a multi-tiered system of supports. We hope you consider submitting a proposal to present at this year's conference! Presentation options include workshops, symposia, and posters.

The submission deadline is midnight PT on April 21, 2021. All proposals must be submitted online.

This conference is hosted by the National Center for School Mental Health (NCSMH; funded in part by the Health Resources and Services Administration). If you have any questions, please contact the NCSMH team at 410-706-0980 or ncsmh@som.umaryland.edu.
