You might call it a silent epidemic.
Up to one in five kids living in the U.S. shows signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder in a given year. In a school classroom of 25 students, five of them may be struggling with the same issues many adults deal with: depression, anxiety, substance abuse.
And yet most students — nearly 80 percent — who need mental health services won’t get them.
Whether treated or not, students do go to school. And the problems they face can tie into major problems found in schools: chronic absence, low achievement, disruptive behavior and dropping out.
Experts say schools could play a role in identifying students with problems and helping them succeed. Stand4kind is here to help schools and students break the stigma and provide training, resources and more.
Shift your school culture toward kindness, empathy, and understanding with our assemblies and mental health training. Classroom PBIS is critical to students and school personnel success. When PBIS is implemented in the classroom, individual student outcomes improve. At the school-wide level, schools experience overall improved outcomes and are more likely to sustain their P.B.I.S. implementation.

Think back to your time in school. Can you recall a time when discipline was used on the “class clown?” Try to remember when the student who struggled to control their behavior, or was often disruptive, was kicked out of class, or reprimanded. If you have a similar memory as …
