Student Mental Health Policy Workgroup
James Wogan was selected to be a member of CDE’s Student Mental Health Policy Workgroup
(SMHPW). The purpose of the distinguished SMHPW is to assess the mental health needs of
California students and gather evidence to support policy recommendations to the California State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPPI) and the California Legislature. This multi-disciplinary workgroup is comprised of teachers, school counselors, school social workers, school psychologists, school nurses, and school administrators, and state and county mental health professionals.

School Counselor vs School Social Worker vs School Psychologist (PPSC Authorizations)
At the Symposium for CA School Administrators (ACSA 2017), we led a workshop that described the similarities and differences between school counseling, school social work, and school psychology. We described the traditional role of each position, then gave examples of how school districts have used each position in innovative ways, with emphasis on equity and collaboration across role groups.
Each role is rewarding in it’s own way. Here’s a link to ACSA Symposium Conference Workshop. Please note CTC regs regarding PPSC authorizations have since been updated.
Equity and Shared Vision
Normalize racial dialogue. Lead with empathy. Be healthy so we can respond authentically. Growth happens outside of comfort zones.

Mindfulness, in-the-moment awareness, and being “present,” goes hand-in-hand with being authentic, mental health and wellness. See link to article in Flipboard magazine SEL.
