One impactful tool for assessing a district or school’s mental health system is the School Mental Health Quality Assessment (SMHQA). The SMHQA is housed in the School Health Performance and Evaluation System (SHAPE). Developed by the National Center for School Mental Health, SHAPE is a public-access platform that offers schools and districts a free online workspace and targeted resources to support school mental health quality improvement. The seven quality domains included in SHAPE’s SMHQA align with the six components of the Wisconsin School Mental Health Framework.
