SRO4: Mental Health Interventions and Care Coordination

At this time, this course is for approved participants only
Providing a continuum of school-based supports to students who are experiencing mental health challenges is an essential component of a safe and supportive school learning environment. When significant emotional and behavioral problems arise, knowing how to work with others in your school to connect students to community-based supports may also be required. Designed for School Resource Officers, this course provides an overview of how to connect students with varying mental health needs to necessary supports both within and outside the school setting. This course is the fourth in a six-part series titled MSP Training in School Safety and Mental Health for School Resource Officers. 
In this course, you will:
  • Recognize when and why it is appropriate to connect students to school-based mental health supports.
  • Describe the continuum of interventions available to students.
  • Identify ways to utilize systems of care, legislation, and policy to continuously improve student access to effective mental health services.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
