School Mental Health Conference

Frustrated child

Healthy children are prepared to develop skills and learn effectively in school. Yet not all children come to school with the emotional and behavioral health they need to succeed. With students in school almost 7 hours every school day, schools are uniquely positioned to support students’ emotional, mental, and behavioral health needs.
