NABITA Policy and Government Affairs 101


Presented on March 16, 2021.

This year, NABITA is embarking on exciting territory in having a dedicated advocacy presence in Washington to advance the collective goals of our members to support school climate and student safety. This webinar focuses on our work, specifically:

  • Updates on NABITA’s policy goals and objectives
    • This includes an in-depth discussion of our signature legislative priority – the Behavioral Intervention Guidelines (BIG) Act H.R.3539. The BIG Act is critical legislation for student support and safety, as it requires the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to develop best practices for schools to establish a Behavioral Intervention Team, mandate that schools receive training in BIT best practices, and require technical assistance to assist schools in implementing the best practices.
  • Discussion with our members on how we can better support and educate you on policy issues
  • Brainstorming on how we can activate our membership to engage directly with policymakers
