Welcome to the University of Montana Safe Schools Center (MSSC)!

We provide training and technical assistance, research and resources, and tele-mental health support to schools and communities across Montana. Through partnerships with schools, districts, families and community stakeholders, we assist in the adaptation of systems and practices to improve students' physical and emotional safety and school climate. We believe that training, resources, and support contribute to schools' ability to sustain safe and healthy school environments.
