CPS School Based Mental Health Network

The CPS School Based Mental Health Network is a collaborative led by Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, and MindPeace. They partner with children’s mental health providers and the community to facilitate the provision of mental health services to CPS community learning centers as part of the seamless system of care for children.

Some of the many functions of the collaborative are to:

•     help community learning centers define their mental health needs; communicate opportunities and set up interviews with mental health providers; ensure a successful launch of the partnership; and troubleshoot issues with providers at the site level.

•     create guidelines for providers and CPS community learning centers for working together to provide effective, quality services.

•     create, measure and report agreed-upon shared mental health outcomes.

•     address capacity needs.

•     advocate for mental health policy that will benefit children and families.
