Tier 2: Mental Health Prevention

Targeted Embedded Strategies for SOME

Targeted interventions (Tier 2) are designed to support students who are at risk for developing mental health challenges or who are showing early signs of not doing well emotionally. Mental health is a dynamic state of functioning that can vary throughout a person’s life based on biological, environmental, and situational factors.1 Early identification and intervention is critical at this point in order to prevent emotional challenges from becoming more severe.2 Intervention at this level focuses on modifying the environment to foster success, embedded strategies to reduce symptoms and foster emotional well-being, and small activity groups to promote successful participation.
