Pushed to the Brink:
How School Districts Are Helping to Solve the Youth Mental Health Crisis
Our students are in crisis.
The mental health and wellbeing of America’s youth has declined drastically causing soaring rates of depression, anxiety, trauma, loneliness, and suicidality. It is so dire that the AAP, AACAP, and CHA have declared child and adolescent mental health a national emergency.
Our schools are on the front lines acting as first responders of this growing crisis.
In-school mental health resources have been pushed to the brink and challenged with unfilled positions, staff shortages, endless waitlists with outside providers, increased demand for services, and more.
Join this live panel discussion with district leaders to learn how they’ve been able to:
- Create an integrated mental health program
- Provide immediate access to quality mental health care
- Build strong therapeutic alliances through personalized clinician matching
- Give students access to equitable and affordable care
- Grow their in-house team quickly to expand their capacity and capabilities
- Collect data and identify needs early for intervention
and multi-tiered support
