- With large caseloads, school counselors are usually not able to provide enough resources to all students who suffer from a mental illness.
- Experts say that a comprehensive approach, families and school professionals working together, is the best approach to identifying and dealing with mental health issues in schools.
- Whether treated or not, children with mental health issues go to school.
- The problems that students with mental health issues face can tie into major problems found in schools: chronic absence, low achievement, disruptive behavior and dropping out.
- Indiana has been selected as 1 of 9 states to be a part of the National Coalition for the State Advancement of School Mental Health, through Center for School Mental Health (CSMH). CSMH will provide technical assistance to Indiana schools with use of the SHAPE System, a school performance and mental health assessment system. A benefit of this assessment system is that it will help to expand the capacity for schools and districts to meet the social, emotional, and mental health needs of their students and staff. For more information, please contact Jeff Wittman or Kristan Sievers-Coffer.
