Promoting Mental Health

Improving access to school-based mental health and social emotional supports and programs is critical in preventing and identifying — early-on — mental health challenges in children and youth. Involving school staff, families, youth, and community agencies and providers, such as mental health, juvenile justice, law enforcement, and other child- and youth- serving organizations, ensures that schools and communities are developing and implementing a comprehensive approach to promote mental health and link students with effective services and supports.
