Statewide PBIS: Partnerships

MN Positive Behavior Support (MNPBS) Network

The Minnesota Positive Behavior Support (MNPBS) Network brings together people who are using positive behavior support from across the state to collaborate and to encourage interagency collaboration.

The MNPBS network includes people interested in implementing positive behavior support, self-advocates, and family members. The Network is used to:

  • Build on current and ongoing positive behavior support efforts,
  • Share resources and tools,
  • Create a way to share news across agencies, programs, and groups,
  • Provide information to our Minnesota communities about positive behavior support.
PBIS Minnesota is an Organizational Member of MNPBS Network, with Active Member representation in the network. View more information about the MNPBS Network here
