“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”

― Ernest Hemingway

The Carter Center


The Carter Center Mental Health Program will lead a collaborative of state agencies, advocacy organizations, academic institutions, local and community leaders, and philanthropic foundations in a strategic and collective effort to expand, sustain, and strengthen school-based behavioral health, prevention, early intervention, and services in the state of Georgia. The vision for the work is that School-Based Behavioral Health (SBBH) will be as common in Georgia's schools as the provision of school lunch and for Georgia to be the preeminent state in SBBH. The goal of this initiative is to optimize limited resources, decrease fragmentation, and expand the work currently being conducted primarily in the public sector so that all of Georgia’s children have the opportunity to benefit from SBBH.
