Across the country, educators are sounding the alarm: Over half of low-income students are struggling with mental health issues.
The stress that poverty has on children is overwhelming and takes a huge toll on a child’s mental health and well-being. Children growing up in poverty are more likely to experience low academic achievement, obesity, behavioral problems, and social and emotional development difficulties.
To address these challenges, our School-Based program provides on-site mental health services and counseling to children during the school year.
However, the loss of the school year’s established routine and structure can be especially difficult for children with mental health needs.
But the good news is you can help!
