Abstract:In the 2007–2008 academic year, the Center for School Mental Health broadly disseminated an electronic survey to Expanded School Mental Health (ESMH) stakeholders in order to better understand ESMH programs in the United States. The survey asked respondents to share data about their ESMH programs across several domains including staffing, funding, service modalities, evidence-based practises and programs, and partnerships. Respondents reported on 156 ESMH programs. This paper highlights the results of the ESMH survey. Findings from the ESMH survey add to the limited literature on what may be typical and not typical in ESMH services and programming in the United States. Implications related to research, practise and workforce development are discussed.
