Schools and Mental Health: A Position Statement

Year: 2022

Schools can make a major contribution to mental health. For this to happen, however, the work must be framed as doing much more than enhancing access to mental health services and adding social-emotional learning to the curriculum. The efforts must be embedded into a unified, comprehensive, and equitable system for addressing barriers to learning and teaching, and the system must be prioritized as a primary and essential component of school improvement policy and practice.
