Addressing Mental Health in School Crisis Prevention and Response: A Resource Guide for WV Schools is aimed at assisting schools in the implementation of WV State Code §18-9F-9: School Access Safety Act which stipulates that schools shall develop and annually revise a comprehensive crisis plan. This guide addresses mental health considerations for crisis plans that are required by Policy 2315: Comprehensive School Counseling Programs. The guide provides resources, tools and recommendations for incorporating best practices related to mental health into the school plans.

The Mental Health Crisis Prevention and Response Plan Template is now an integrated component of the overarching WV School Crisis Prevention and Response Plan Template. A writable “Word” version of the Plan Template is available here.
