The National Community of Practice (CoP) on School Behavioral Health is co-led by the IDEA Partnership at NASDSE (funded by Office of Special Education Programs) and the Center for School Mental Health at the University of Maryland (funded by Health Resources and Services Administration).The focus of this Community is to collaboratively work to create a shared agenda across education, mental health and families.
