Response: It is estimated that, among children under 18 years old in the United States, approximately 16.5 percent had at least one mental health disorder in 2016. Of these children, about 49.4 percent did not receive needed treatment or counseling from a mental health professional.1 Studies also show that school mental health resources may facilitate mental health service use for children with mental health disorders.2 Using data primarily from the 2019–20 School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS), this Fast Fact examines the prevalence of mental health services in schools. SSOCS asked whether and where schools provided two types of mental health services: diagnostic mental health assessments3 to evaluate students for mental health disorders4 and treatment5 for mental health disorders. During the 2019–20 school year, 55 percent of public schools (or 45,600 schools) reported providing diagnostic mental health assessment services to evaluate students for mental health disorders (hereafter referred to as “diagnostic services”). Fewer public schools (42 percent, or 35,200 schools) offered mental health treatment services to students for mental health disorders (hereafter referred to as “treatment services”). The percentages of public schools providing either diagnostic or treatment services were higher in 2019–20 than in 2017–18 (55 vs. 51 percent and 42 vs. 38 percent).6" https://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=1130 Ugh....
