This chapter reports on the results of a study conducted for the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) evaluating the impact or effectiveness of mental health consultation services to school districts. The investigation produced many insights into what are the differences between effective and ineffective mental health consultants and the prerequisites for developing a quality consultation program.
