Scanlan Center for School Mental Health

Your students need you more than ever. Keep student, educator, and staff mental health top of mind within your school or campus community.

The Scanlan Center for School Mental Health is the state’s hub for school-based mental health research, training, professional learning, and clinical services.

We work with schools, districts, AEAs, universities/colleges, and key stakeholders across the state to support the well-being of PreK-12 students and educators as well as college students and faculty. 

A partnership between the University of Iowa College of Education and the Iowa Department of Education, the Scanlan Center for School Mental Health launched in June 2021 with an ambitious mission – to provide social, emotional behavioral, and psychological services to all of Iowa’s schools across 99 counties, not only to aid in COVID-19 recovery but to build state capacity for immediate and future delivery of mental health supports.
