Title: Mental Health in Schools: A Shared Agenda

Description: Although schools are not in the mental health business, it has long been acknowledged that psychosocial and mental health concens must be addressed if schools are to function satisfactorily and students are to learn and perform effectively. This notion is reflected in the aims of the NO Child Left Behind Act and the Individiuals with Disabilities Education Act, and it is consonant with the goals and recommendations of the Prsident's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health.
