A State-wide partnership to promote safe and supportive schools

June 23, 2015

Schools continue to be an important context for preventative interventions targeting a range of behavioral problems. This paper describes a statewide initiative that was formed and led through a partnership between Johns Hopkins University, the Maryland State Department of Education, and Sheppard Pratt Health System, which focused on implementing evidence-based practices and conducting prevention research in Maryland public schools. This paper discusses lessons learned from this partnership, and implications for researchers engaged in translational research in school settings.
