The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, reports that one in five children and adolescents experience a mental health problem during their school years.
Examples include stress, anxiety, bullying, family problems, depression, a learning disability, and alcohol and substance abuse. Serious mental health problems, such as self-injurious behaviors and suicide, are on the rise, particularly among youth.
