Preparing Rural Inclusive Mental Health Educators (PRIMHE) 

The PRIMHE Project is a countywide preparation program partnership between the Tulare County Office of Education (TCOE), the Institute of Higher Education's masters-level programs (MSW, LPC, MFT track), and partnering school districts. The program includes supportive preparation for graduate students seeking to become school-based mental health professionals. 

Beginning January 1, 2023, TCOE was awarded a grant through the Office of Safe & Supportive Schools, Office of Elementary & Secondary Education to support the PRIMHE Project's work in recruiting and retaining high-quality school-based mental health professionals for high-need, hard-to-staff schools in Tulare County.
