Schools & Universities
Because schools sometimes serve as the de facto mental health system for children and young adults in the United States, it is absolutely critical that students have access to support services within the educational environment.
However, supporting mental health and wellness at schools and universities is extremely challenging given the high proportion of students to available psychiatric professionals. Millions of students suffer from mental health issues, yet only a fraction are receiving the necessary treatment. Almost 7.7 million children and teens have at least one mental health disorder, including depression, anxiety, or ADHD.
The American Psychological Association has noted that suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students in the U.S. and the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24. According to the Center for Disease Control, 17% of students in grades 9 to 12 in the U.S. have seriously considered attempting suicide in the previous 12 months. In addition, it is estimated that at least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect, though experts suspect this actual number is much higher.
