SEL/Mental Health Plan

In June of 2020, Session Law 2020-7 was approved by the North Carolina General Assembly. It is an act to require the state board of education to adopt a school-based mental health policy and to require k-12 school units to adopt and to implement a school-based mental health plan that includes a mental health training program and a suicide risk referral protocol.


The NC State Board of Education then adopted SHLT-003:School-Based Mental Health Policy that aligns with legislation and details compliance requirements.
