Summary

The Scandalous Neglect of Children’s Mental Health: What Schools Can Do makes the case that children with mental health needs are under-identified and under-served by schools and other agencies. After reading this brief but powerful book, you will better understand the nature of children’s mental health needs and the need for expanded services for children in schools and communities. The risks and benefits of treatment, especially early intervention, are discussed and guidelines for action by teachers, parents, and others are provided. The sad fact is that many people do not understand that most young people with mental health needs never receive any treatment of any kind and most of those who receive any treatment at all receive those services only in schools.
