In December 2016, the Otho S.A. Sprague Memorial Institute awarded Partnership for a Connected Illinois with a $21,600 planning grant to implement demonstration projects it the Chicago Public Schools to provide school-based tele-behavioral health.  States across the country have successfully implement these programs that address the huge, unmet need of children to receive behavioral health care. PCI has been organizing communities throughout the state to launch demonstration project.  (See the case statement.)
