Mental Health in Schools

The School-Based Mental Health section provides information and resources about how mental health affects the way a child learns and develops and directly impacts a child’s experience at school. This site was designed as a resource for parents and caregivers to help you understand what type of problems your child might be having that can impact their school performance and adjustment, as well as identifying the supports that are available in both the community and at school. We also help parents better navigate the school system if their child has a mental health issue or disability through our frequently asked questions.
