School Mental Health Navigators Community of Practice

Formed in 2020, the SMH Navigator Community of Practice gathers monthly online for an opportunity for navigators to connect on best practices, challenges, and share resources. Whether you are called a navigator or have taken on the tasks without the title, we want to learn from you! Email Allyson (aforseth@wafca.org) to join!

Am I a school mental health navigator?
You may have this role in your school community without carrying the title, but essentially school mental health navigators help students and families connect to resources and facilitate communication between teachers, staff, families and providers. They know the local community resources and many may have lived experience that helps them quickly engage with families and align as a supportive resource. In some schools this position assists with scheduling appointments, connecting with families in their home and more.

You can find our upcoming meetings on WAFCA’S events calendar!

School-Based Mental Health Clinicians Community of Practice

About the Community of Practice: Launching in 2022, the School-Based Mental Health Clinicians Community of Practice gathers monthly online during the school year, creating opportunities for school-based or school-connected clinicians, counselors, and therapists to connect on best practices with the expert guidance of an experienced clinician, provide and receive support through challenges, and share resources. 

What are School-Based Clinicians? This refers to mental health therapists (and those in training) who work within a school setting or as a community provider with a contract or MOU with a school or district. School-Based Clinicians provide direct therapeutic services to individual students or selected groups. In some schools, this position may also carry other responsibilities as determined by the districts’ needs!
