New CDC Report Released: 2016 School Health Policies and Practices Study (SHPPS) Results

Today, CDC released district-level findings from the 2016 School Health Policies and Practices Study (SHPPS) on the Healthy Youth Web site. SHPPS is a national study periodically conducted to assess school health policies and practices.
These new district-level data suggest that while improvements are being made in practices around some health issues, there are issues that still need improvement. SHPPS data show:
  • The percentage of districts with school health policies and practices related to violence, bullying, and suicide prevention has increased since 2000.
  • The majority of districts require high schools to provide health education on HIV, STD and substance use prevention, however, fewer districts require elementary and middle schools to provide age-appropriate education in these areas.
  • Less than 2% of districts had policies requiring schools to provide health services such as testing for HIV, STDs, and pregnancy.
School policies and practices play an important role in supporting student health. Reversing the decline of school policies and practices regarding substance use, HIV, and STD prevention is critical to addressing these priority public health issues.

SAMHSA The Dialogue

Mass Violence Events

In the past several years, we have seen a rise in shootings and other mass violence events. The impact of these highly publicized events may be far reaching, but recovery for communities and survivors is possible. As these articles from the field demonstrate, preplanning and strong partnerships are crucial to an effective immediate response and long-term recovery.
This issue of The Dialogue from SAMHSA's Disaster Technical Assistance Center (DTAC) brings you stories of responses to mass violence in communities across the United States. It focuses on lessons learned from these events and includes information that may be helpful in your behavioral health planning efforts.
Have you taken a look back at past incidents in your community and thought about what could have been done better or what worked well? Do you have important lessons learned that SAMHSA DTAC can highlight in future issues of this newsletter? Please share your experience via email to DTAC@samhsa.hhs.gov. Selected reader comments will be printed in a future edition of The Dialogue.

Recommended Resources

This part of the Disaster-Specific Resources installment of the SAMHSA Disaster Behavioral Health Information Series features resources about mass violence. The collection includes websites, tip sheets, toolkits, manuals, and videos about incidents of mass violence and their mental health and substance use (behavioral health) effects, school crisis response, coping with reactions to an incident of mass violence, and supporting children in coping.
SAMHSA's National Child Traumatic Stress Network provides links to tip sheets and information about how incidents of mass violence may affect children and families, how parents and other caregivers can support children in coping, and helping children and adolescents who were injured in mass violence incidents. Also included are materials for school staff and pediatric providers.
In this article, the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder explains the ways in which veterans may react slightly differently from the rest of the population to incidents of mass violence, terrorism, and war. Authors present research findings about how these incidents may affect veterans differently, and they provide suggestions for veterans for coping with their reactions, finding additional help, and supporting children and members of their communities.
