Grants to USA private and public nonprofit entities for school-based mental health services in regions affected by natural disasters. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Eligible regions are those that have been affected by hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods.

The purpose of this program is to provide mental and substance use disorder treatment, crisis counseling, and other related supports to children in school-based settings impacted by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, Typhoon Mangkhut, Super Typhoon Yutu, and wildfires and earthquakes occurring in calendar year 2018 and tornadoes and floods occurring in calendar year 2019 in those areas for which a major disaster or emergency was declared under section 401 or 501 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5170 and 5191) (referred to under this heading as ‘‘covered disaster or emergency’’), including activities authorized under section 319(a) of the Public Health Service Act. SAMHSA recognizes the impact natural disasters can have, particularly on youth, and is providing funding to mitigate this impact.

Grant funds for school-based systems of care will support the development and implementation of a comprehensive plan of activities, services, and strategies to decrease the impact of the disaster on school-aged youth in grades K-12. Funds may be used to: (1) increase awareness of mental health issues among school-aged youth; (2) provide training for school personnel and other adults who interact with school-aged youth to detect and respond to mental health issues; (3) connect school-aged youth, who may have behavioral health issues (including serious emotional disturbance (SED) or serious mental illness (SMI)), and their families to needed services; and (4) provide direct treatment services within school settings. 

Required Activities: School-Based Services

  • Develop and implement a comprehensive plan of evidence-based
    developmentally appropriate school- and community-based mental health
    services, including crisis counseling.
  • Implement processes to respond immediately on-site if a school-aged youth
    exhibits behavioral signs warranting the need for clinical attention.
  • Provide direct treatment services in schools via the use of mental health
    professionals, behavioral health aides, peers, and other related health
    professionals.
  • Provide coordinated referral, services, and follow-up to school-aged youth and
    their families for evidence-based school- and community-based mental health
    practices and services.
  • Develop and implement a workforce development training plan to increase the
    mental health awareness and literacy of school staff, administrators, parents, and
    others who interact with school-aged youth to recognize the signs and symptoms
    of mental illness and link them to appropriate services.
  • Establish relationships with local businesses, families, and community groups to
    broaden and link all community resources available to school-aged youth and
    their families impacted by the disaster.
