This chapter discusses the delivery of Interpersonal Psychotherapy–Adolescent Skills Training (IPT-AST) in school settings. The literature on school-based mental health programs is reviewed. Advantages of delivering preventive interventions in schools and challenges to implementation are outlined. These challenges include obtaining agreement from school personnel and boards of education; identifying personnel who will take the lead in implementing IPT-AST; identifying adolescents who will be appropriate for these services; explaining IPT-AST to adolescents and parents to engage them in the program; and managing logistical and scheduling issues within the schools. The authors discuss strategies to address the challenges of implementing this depression prevention program in a school setting.
