Student assistance programs are designed to identify, assess, and refer youth who are exhibiting problem behaviors to both internal and external resources. They provide a link between community resources and schools to help meet the needs of students and their families. In his book, Williams examines three SAP models implemented in 18 New Hampshire schools from an organizational perspective, assesses their performance, and shares the lessons learned.
