Our Schools & The Mental Health Crisis

Our schools are experiencing a mental health crisis. In any given year, up to one in five kids living in the U.S. shows signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder.

What can we do to identify these students within our schools and connect them to the resources they need?

In part 1 of a series on mental health in schools, NPR talked to educators, advocates, teachers and parents across the country about what a comprehensive approach to mental health would look like.
