Mental Health

According to the Surgeon General’s Report on Mental Health (1999) an estimated one in five students will experience a mental health problem during their school years, with 11% experiencing significant mental health impairment. With such a significant proportion of students experiencing social/emotional problems, it is important for school personnel to know about the supports that students need to benefit from education. Research supports the fact that a positive school climate and effective interventions can contribute to improved student achievement.
