Schools & Education

Early identification and intervention in schools can provide for better long-term outcomes for those with mental health issues or who have experienced or are experiencing trauma. This support is also important for individuals with intellectual and/or development disabilities (IDD). Half of those who will develop mental health disorders show symptoms by age 14. Therefore, early identification of risk factors or signs of adjustment difficulties provide an opportunity to intervene before problems develop into more significant and costly impairments. A continuum of school mental health resources leads to better educational and mental health outcomes.
