Expanding, Enhancing Emotional Health (E3) Program


EXPANDING, ENHANCING EMOTIONAL HEALTH (E3) is defined as program located in a school or on school grounds that provides on-site comprehensive mental health services from mild to moderate severity of need. It includes referrals, tracking and follow-up, throughout the year with signed agreements with the host school and/or local school district. The E3 provider is expected to operate at 40 hours or full time equivalent, five days per week at a single location. The 40 hours of clinical services must be provided by a licensed Master’s level mental health provider (LMSW, LLMSW, LPC, LLPC, LMFT, LLMFT). Appropriate supervision must be available.  E3 providers can be located in elementary, middle, high, or alternative schools and must follow School Code Regulations.
