The Challenge of Providing Mental Health Services in Schools

Chapter

Abstract

It is considered “imperative” by most researchers and policy makers that schools meet mental health needs of students particularly when academic achievement and learning in general are affected, with full realization that schools cannot meet every need of every student (Paternite, 2005). The growth of school-based services to meet the mental health needs of children and adolescents has been driven to some extent by federal initiatives. The US Surgeon General’s report in 1999 and the US Public Health Services report in 2000 placed students’ mental health in focus. Both reports advocated for school-based approaches to meeting mental health needs (Paternite, 2005).
