He also directs the School Mental Health Program, which provides assessment, treatment, and prevention services to youth in 23 elementary, middle and high schools in Baltimore.
Steven W. Evans, Ph.D., is the Alvin V.

He is a former special education teacher and currently a clinical psychologist who trains graduate and undergraduate students in school mental health practice and research.
Nancy A. Lever, Ph.D., completed her undergraduate training at Dartmouth College and her doctoral training in clinical psychology at Temple University. After finishing an internship at the University of Maryland Medical System, she stayed on at the University to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in the School Mental Health Program (SMHP). In 1998, she joined the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as an Assistant Professor.
Within the Division, she has been a driving force in advancing training related to school mental health and has coordinated training experiences for psychology interns, psychiatry fellows, postdoctoral fellows and SMHP staff. She serves as the Associate Director of the VA/University of Maryland Psychology Internship and is the Deputy Director of the SMHP. Dr. Lever joined the Center for School Mental Health Analysis and Action (then the Center for School Mental Health Assistance) in 1996 as a Consultant and is presently the Director of Training, Outreach and Dissemination. She chairs the program committee for the national conference, is a facilitator of the National Community of Practice on School Mental Health, and represents the CSMHA on local, state and national committees related to school mental health.
