Through the National Quality Counts initiative, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Division of Child, Adolescent, and Family Health provides support to the School-Based Health Alliance and the Center for School Mental Health at University of Maryland to expand the number of school-based health services and strengthen their sustainability by developing a set of national standardized performance measures.

The School-Based Health Alliance collaborated with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing and the Weitzman Institute to deliver a two-part webinar series that explored the impacts and opportunities related to trauma-informed care within schools. The partners also implemented an ECHO series for providers who work with children and adolescents in a school setting — Childhood Trauma in the COVID-19 Era. These efforts are made possible by the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CoE-IHS), a training and technical assistance center funded by a grant award from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and operated by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

SBHA supports Child Trends in the Innovations in Family Planning Clinical Service Delivery for Underserved School-Based Populations project, funded by the Office of Population Affairs. SBHA works with Child Trends to identify, document, and disseminate innovative strategies that are used to provide family planning services to underserved adolescents in school-based settings.
