Mental Health

One in five children and youth have a diagnosable emotional, behavioral or mental health disorder and one in ten young people have a mental health challenge that is severe enough to impair how they function at home, school or in the community.

Our BOCES has established relationships with a variety of providers who can support school districts in identifying and developing strategies that teachers and staff can use to understand youth that are struggling with mental health issues, and help you create safe, nurturing and culturally responsive learning environments. This contributes to academic achievement for all.
