The William James INTERFACE Referral Service is an initiative to improve the integration of mental health and wellness services within school systems and their greater community. The primary goal of the William James INTERFACE Referral Service is to enhance, improve, or develop collaborative efforts between school-based mental health and wellness services and community mental health and wellness systems and services.
The model of the William James INTERFACE Referral Service aims above all to help break down the “silos” that exist within community agencies or systems that can often hinder access to mental health and wellness services. By enhancing communication between schools and agencies, the William James INTERFACE Referral Service allows each organization to work more effectively on behalf of the students it serves.
The information on the web site is drawn from a variety of sources and publications in the area of family mental health and wellness. The articles, resources and providers are “vetted” and reviewed by the advisory and editorial board below before being added to the web site or database.

The Power of the Adolescent Mind



The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health, in collaboration with the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs and Penn Translational Neuroscience Center Co-Director Dr. Frances Jensen developed a video and two discussion guides about research on adolescent brain development, functioning, and capacity.
This new video, The Power of the Adolescent Brain: A TAG Talk uses research to shine a light on adolescent brain development. Motivated by her personal experience of parenting two teenage boys, and drawing on clinical experience and research, neurologist Dr. Jensen shares what researchers have discovered about adolescent brain development, functioning, and capacity and provides practical suggestions for practitioners and families with adolescents.
