Schools need more mental health support, study says

Saturday, December 12, 2020

The University of South Carolina and three other schools recently conducted a national survey on teacher and student wellness. 

Of the roughly 2,100 teachers that responded, almost half said they’re noticing mental health issues in students more often than before the pandemic. 55 percent said they’re handling student wellness issues themselves.
