Practice Group (PG) is a smaller unit within the DC CoP. A Work Group (WG) is a time limited learning space that is created in response to emerging issues. The PG/WG members describe the elements of a safe and supportive school environment, and promote implementation of specific interdisciplinary practices that improve mental health and wellbeing in several key areas.

The DC CoP keeps members focused on the ‘big picture’ of advancing school behavioral health by sharing strategies that members can use with their school teams to engage partners and collaborate to meet shared goals. The PG/WGs deepen understanding of what timely access to high-quality, reliable support looks like in specific areas of school behavioral health. They may also recommend ways to mobilize resources, ensure equitable access, align services and promote culturally responsive interventions within schools and across DC. The PG/WGs may change based on the needs of the DC CoP members and school-based teams. 

The PG/WGs are supported by two Milken Institute School of Public Health graduate students: Bela Mahtabfar and Grace Chen.
