Multitiered systems of supports, or MTSS, is the most effective strategy for delivery of comprehensive school-based mental health services. However, this framework is only as effective as the interventions used. Given the racial, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity among the school-aged population, it is critical that school-based mental health providers (SBMHPs) use adopt approaches that consider cultural and contextual-based factors impacting students’ wellbeing. Culturally responsive practices can result in greater student engagement in mental health services, healthier therapeutic relationships, and better treatment outcomes for youth with marginalized sociocultural identities. In this webinar, participants will (1) identify barriers and facilitators to mental health services for youth with marginalized social identities, (2) consider how microaggressions impact students’ mental health, (3) define culturally responsive mental health services, and (4) describe how to integrate the tenets of culturally responsive practice into a mental health MTSS model.
Celeste M. Malone, PhD, MS, is an associate professor and coordinator of the school psychology program at Howard University. She received her master’s degree in school counseling from Johns Hopkins University and her doctorate in school psychology from Temple University, and she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in child clinical and pediatric psychology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Malone’s primary research interest relates to multicultural and diversity issues embedded in the training and practice of school psychology. Specifically, her work addresses the development of multicultural competence through education and training, diversification of the profession of school psychology, and the relationship between culturally responsive practice and pre-K–12 student outcomes. Related to her interest in professional issues in school psychology, Dr. Malone has continuously held leadership positions in psychology professional associations and has been recognized for her ongoing leadership and commitment to social justice in psychology by presidential recognitions from NASP, the Maryland School Psychologists’ Association, and APA Division 16 School Psychology. Dr. Malone is the 2022–2023 NASP President and, notably, is the second person of color to ever serve in this role.

1. Identify barriers and facilitators to mental health services for youth with marginalized social identities.
2. Explain how microaggressions impact students’ mental health.
3. Define culturally responsive mental health services.
4. Describe how to integrate the tenets of culturally responsive practice into a mental health MTSS mode.
