Welcome to the National Center for School Mental Health.

The mission of the National Center for School Mental Health (NCSMH) is to strengthen policies and programs in school mental health to improve learning and promote success for America's youth. From its inception in 1995, the Center's leadership and interdisciplinary staff has promoted the importance of providing mental health services to children, adolescents, and families directly in schools and communities.

The 2023 Annual Conference on Advancing School Mental Health will be December 5-7 in New Orleans, LA!

Registration opens summer 2023.
