Mental Health of Students. Position Statement. Revised
National Association of School Nurses (NJ1)
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) that mental health is as critical to academic success as physical well-being. School nurses play a vital role in the school community by promoting positive mental health development in students through school/community-based programs and curricula. As members of interdisciplinary teams, school nurses play a vital role in supporting early assessment, planning, intervention, and follow-up of children in need of mental health services. In addition, school nurses serve as advocates, facilitators and counselors of mental health services both within the school environment and in the community. (Contains 24 references/resources.)
