Interconnected Systems Framework Webinar Series 

The Northwest MHTTC and Pacific Southwest MHTTC are excited to partner to bring you our three-part series. 
  • 101: An Introduction: The interconnected systems framework (ISF) promotes using a single system of delivery for educational and mental health supports in schools. ISF offers a solution to the challenge of meeting the needs of the whole child. Presented by Susan Barrett, MA, and facilitated by the school mental health leads of the Northwest MHTTC (Kelcey Schmitz) and the Pacific Southwest MHTTC (Leora Wolf-Prusan). 
  • 201: When School Mental Health is Integrated Within an MTSS - What's Different: ISF enhances multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) by integrating student mental health and wellness into the existing structures. It engages a broader range of partners, involves a wider scope of data, and expands interventions to address mental health. This webinar will be led by Susan Barrett, contributing author for the ISF Fact Sheet series, who will be joined by school district and system-based ISF practitioners from the Northwest and Pacific Southwest regions. Presenters will share their ISF implementation challenges, celebrations, and lessons learned or learning. 
  • 301: Installing an Integrated ApproachISF is most transformative at the local level. This webinar details the installation process at the district, community, and school level that results in a comprehensive ISF action plan. This webinar will be led by Susan Barrett, contributing author for the ISF Fact Sheet series, who will be joined by school district and system-based ISF practitioners from the Northwest and Pacific Southwest regions. Presenters will share their ISF implementation challenges, celebrations, and lessons learned or learning.

ISF Targeted Workgroup

The purpose of ISF Targeted Workgroup is to provide opportunities for sites from around the country to learn and interact with one another as well as gain access to higher frequency technical assistance. The goals of the workgroup are to: 

1) increase ISF capacity at both state and regional levels,
2) create learning examples to serve as national demonstration, and
3) test and refine ISF tools.
