On Monday, April 1, 2024 from 2:00-4:30 p.m. EST,  The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) in partnership with the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS) Health and Human Services (HHS), will convene state and local government leaders virtually to discuss investing in children’s mental health and well-being.  The convening will feature schools, districts, and states that are successfully providing school-based services and are investing in building schools’ capacity to support student mental health. It will also raise the issue of sustainability and discuss resources available to ensure states are positioned to utilize Medicaid funds to sustain these efforts long-term.

The webinar is open to the public and anyone can attend. However, on April 2nd, ED and CMS are offering SEA and SMA teams an opportunity to receive technical assistance and discuss school-based services in their state.
