Specifically, our role as leaders in implementation To begin, we need to understand our own biases about mental health, and change Changing values, not just behaviours To obtain the mental health outcomes we want for our students need to change the knowledge AND attitudes and values of adults who support students 1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST 40 Case Study #1 and #2 1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST 41 Education Supports For every increment of performance I demand

from you, I have an equal responsibility to provide you with the capacity to meet that expectation (R. Elmore, 2002) 1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST (Fixsen) 42 Successful Districts Clear vision we will do literacy, math, mental health this way Unwavering instructional/mental health leadership and support Good communication plan with consistent messages Effective supports in place to help Principals, teachers, and staff follow through and do it

1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST (Fixsen) 43 Successful Districts Assure consistent supports across buildings Do not depend so much on unique principals or teachers who come and go Achieve more consistent student outcomes, across teachers, buildings, and years 1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST (Fixsen)

44 Implementation Science Longitudinal Studies of Comprehensive School Reforms Evidence-based Actual Supports Years 1-3 Outcomes Years 4-5 Every Teacher Trained Fewer than 50% of the teachers received some training Fewer than 10% of the schools used the CSR as intended Every Teacher Continually Supported

Fewer than 25% of those teachers received support Vast majority of students did not benefit Aladjem & Borman, 2006; Vernez, Karam, Mariano, & DeMartini, 2006 Implementation Science An intervention is one thing Implementation is something else altogether Like serum and a syringe Each is necessary

Neither one is useful without the other 1/13/2012 School Mental Health ASSIST (Fixsen) 46 Formula for Success Effective intervention practices X Effective implementation practices = Good outcomes Disproportional Impact: Students benefit 8 to 12 times more (Institute of Medicine, 2000; 2001; 2009; New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, 2003; National Commission on Excellence in

Education,1983; Department of Health and Human Services, 1999) IMPLEMENTATION INTERVENTION Effective Effective NOT Effective NOT Effective Actual Benefits Poor outcomes 1/13/2012 Inconsistent; Not Sustainable; Poor outcomes Poor outcomes;
