In Connecticut, 32 school districts and 36 schools have utilized the SHAPE (School Health Assessment and Performance Enhancement) System. The SHAPE System is a dynamic, free online system to improve school mental health accountability, excellence, and sustainability.  Schools and School Districts can use SHAPE to:

  • document their service array and multi-tiered services and supports 
  • advance a data-driven mental health team process for the school or district
  • access targeted resources to help advance school mental health quality and sustainability
  • achieve SHAPE recognition to increase opportunities for federal, state and local grant funding.
