Building Cross-Sector Collaboration to Support School Behavioral Health Services: Washington’s Children’s Regional Behavioral Health Pilot Program

This case study provides an overview of the Children’s Regional Behavioral Health pilot project and highlights key lessons learned from this work. As states consider innovative methods for improving cross-sector collaboration, coordination of care and financing for school health services (especially behavioral health services), Washington’s model and experience provide valuable insights that can inform future efforts.
