School mental health services support learning and safety


School-based mental health services promote student safety, well-being and learning.

The continuum of school mental health includes promoting wellness, resiliency, skills building, and help-seeking behaviors, as well as providing direct support. These services support social-emotional-behavioral health and help identify students who may need immediate intervention or more intensive services.

School-employed mental health professionals, like school psychologists, are specially trained to provide mental health services in the school context and are familiar and accessible to students, teachers and families. Ensuring adequate numbers of these professionals is critical to creating safe, supportive schools for all students.
