Limited Capacity filling up

As the front-line mentors of students on a daily basis, and as the shapers of the environment where one-fifth of the U.S. population is found on a given school day, educators play a critical role in enhancing the mental health of students. It is not a new insight that mental health concerns must be addressed if students are to succeed at school. As educators it is our job to help ensure schools are caring and supportive places that maximize learning and well-being in order to strengthen students, families, schools, and communities.
