State School Mental Health Plan

The Texas Legislature tasked the TEA in SB 11 with the development of a statewide school mental health plan. The plan, published in December 2020, is designed to lay the foundation for future strategies to advance the long-term statutory charge.

TEA strategies, goals and activities will guide the agency to effectively support Texas schools with student mental and behavioral health access. TEA is strategically coordinating school mental and behavioral health activities (prevention through intervention) with school safety under the Safe and Supportive School Program (SSSP).
