School Based Mental Health Providers (SBMHPs) provide mental health treatment in school settings for grade school students between Kindergarten through twelfth grade. They are tasked with helping to remove barriers in students’ lives that might otherwise prevent them from achieving academic success. Depending on state and licensure requirements different SBMHP are used. This study was conducted to gain a better understanding of the differences among SBMHP participants in regards to their licensure, years of experience, and number of schools they work in simultaneously. An online survey of SBMHPs was employed in order to compare differences in engagement with students, teachers, administrators, parents, and job satisfaction. The researcher analyzed quantitative data and responses to open response questions, and recommendations will be made based on findings from this analysis.
