Title: Mental Health in Schools: Reflections on the Past, Present, and Future - from the Perspective of the Center for Mental Heath in Schools at UCLA (Center Report)

Description: This report stems from an invitation to the Center staff to reflect on the past, present, and future of mental health in schools for a brief presentation. Because the topic is so broad, we knew that the request for a "brief" overview would not provide sufficient detail. Anyone who has spent time in schools can itemize the multifaceted mental health and psychosocial concerns that warrant attention. The question for all of us is: How should our society's schools address these matters? In answering this question, it is useful to reflect on what schools have been and are doing about mental health concerns.
