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.
This year’s conference is BHECN’s first foray into the conversation on school mental health. Our goal is to take a first step toward better mutual understanding between the school and mental health systems, so together we can better support student mental health.
