Advocacy and public policy are of paramount importance in realizing changes in the school system, especially in the area of school behavioral health and special education. Advocacy for sensible public policies and the implementation of best practices is a critical element in the Center’s strategy and long-term impact. Advocacy work with policy makers helps inform decisions and promote policies aligned with behavioral health best practices for school-age children. This ongoing process also helps to inform the Center’s agenda for future Texas legislative sessions.
