Maine’s Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) for behavioral health and wellness is a promising way for schools and communities to work together so that every student can achieve health, wellness, and social success in schools, at home, and in their communities. School and community practices that encompass social and emotional learning and regulation, bully prevention, substance misuse prevention and intervention, etc. are integrated into a continuum of supports for children and families, so that the level of response matches the intensity of need. The goal of MTSS is for children and families to have access to a streamlined system of supports, than includes proven school and community-based practices and a referral process with community behavioral health providers for a seamless delivery model for children and their families.
