Mental Health in Schools: A Hidden Crisis

AStudent_Upset.jpgccording to the latest research, one in five students living in the U.S. demonstrates signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder: anxiety, depression, trauma, etc. However the vast majority – nearly 80 percent – who need mental health services, won’t receive them.


Social, emotional and behavioral challenges can have a substantial negative impact on students’ educational progress, including chronic absences, low achievement, disruptive behavior and dropping out. Since every student must attend school, it is a logical and effective place to address mental health needs. In the School-Based Mental Health model we have recently adopted, schools are tasked with identifying students in distress and connecting them to appropriate services.


The SMUHSD has adopted a School-Based Mental Health model to address the growing concerns of student mental health. Learn more.
