This is a Research-in-Progress webinar hosted by Systems for Action National Coordinating Center. The webinar will discuss a one-year developmental study that will support the creation of a novel risk indicator tool that links academic performance and health data to identify academic indicators of such behavioral health needs as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and substance abuse. The research team will facilitate system alignment as they collaborate with leaders from the education, health, and social services sectors to design a tool that could be implemented within the school district. Findings will contribute to early prevention strategies and foster cross-sector collaborations between education and health providers to help improve adolescent behavioral health services equity in under-resourced communities.
