The 4th Annual Center for School Behavioral Health Conference promises to be the biggest and best yet! Now with a two-day option, the conference will welcome 850 educators, parents, mental health professionals and advocates from across Texas.
The Center transforms school behavioral health to support the healthy psychological and cognitive development of children in the Greater Houston region through services and programs promoting behavioral health, as well as the prevention, early identification, and treatment of behavioral health disorders.
Register today, as this conference has sold out every year! One and two day registrations are available. 


The Center for School Behavioral Health at Mental Health America of Greater Houston serves as a “living laboratory” for incubating innovative, cost-effective and replicable best practices. Our core methodology is collective impact for systems change.
The majority of individuals engaged in our work are child-serving individuals working in various capacities such as campus and district administrators, counselors/therapists, educators, nurses, campus resource personnel, and youth/case workers. We also engage parents, relatives, and youth, as well as elected and public officials, including school board members, legislators, and Texas Education Agency (TEA) personnel. Our team is actively working with TEA officials and legislators to ensure that children’s mental health is central to student wellbeing across the state of Texas.
Our School Behavioral Health Conference focuses on behavioral health interventions and outcomes for children in school settings to advance the knowledge and skills related to school mental health practice, research, training, and policy. 


Since the inception of the conference attendance has grown from 300 to an anticipated 800 attendees this year invested in improving the wellbeing of Texas children and youth. In 2018, we had professionals from as far as California and Indiana attend.
