The Hidden Crisis in Mental Health and Education: The Gap between Student Needs and Existing Supports
Malti, Tina; Noam, Gil G.
New Directions for Youth Development, n120 p13-29 Win 2008
The authors provide a selected review of mental health and educational concerns evident in U.S. middle schools and describes promising and important strategies to ameliorate the high rates of students with mental health and academic difficulties. Despite some promising and important strategies, service systems are fragmented, and comprehensive systems of supports are still in development. Furthermore, there remains a lack of integrated developmental considerations in practice. The RALLY approach systematically introduces development and caring adult relationships into preventive practice and combines mental health, education, and youth development to promote students' resiliency and academic potential. (Contains 60 notes.)
