Evaluation of HMO-school partnerships to improve children's health

This grant will support the evaluation of two projects Kaiser Permanente is undertaking in partnership with schools to improve health and health care for children. The first -- Healthy Minds -- will screen children referred from a school-based clinic who may be in need of mental health services. The Kaiser team will provide assessment, short-term intervention and triage to appropriate health, educational and mental health services in the community or school district. In the second -- Hearts in Power -- Kaiser will partner with several schools to undertake prevention activities in 6th grade classes targeting several risk factors for heart disease: tobacco use, physical inactivity, and high fat diets.
