Give school counselors more tools to turn the tide on the youth mental health crisis
More than 130 children’s organizations recently called on President Biden to declare a national emergency in response to America’s youth mental health crisis.
That news came just days after an expert panel recommended that all children ages eight to 18 receive routine screenings for anxiety. These developments drew new attention to a worsening situation.
Yet too often, concrete strategies for improving youth mental health are missing from the discussion. One of those strategies should be expanded access to school counseling.
School counselors know what the youth require.
