SEDNET 7A: A Region of Florida's Statewide Network
Serving Orange and Osceola Counties​

The Multiagency Network for Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities (SEDNET) creates and facilitates a network of key stakeholders committed to assisting in the provision of a quality system of care for students with or at-risk of emotional and/or behavioral disabilities (E/BD). This is accomplished through an ongoing partnership between education, mental health, social services, and families.

About Us​

SEDNET is a network of 19 regional projects that are comprised of the major child serving agencies, community-based service providers, students, and their families. Local school districts serve as fiscal agents for each local regional project. Within this framework, SEDNET focuses on developing interagency collaboration and sustaining partnerships among professionals and families in the education,mental health, substance abuse, child welfare, and juvenile justice systems serving children and youth with and at-risk of E/BD.

In 2010, the SEDNET Administration Project was added to the existing network of 19 regional projects. In addition, geographic restructuring of the regional projects achieved better alignment of the SEDNET local regions with other state agencies and judicial circuits. The SEDNET Administration Project is housed at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg and provides technical assistance and support in building service capacity within the 19 regional projects and collaborates in related state level activities impacting systems of care.
