Historically, less than 20% of children and youth with mental health (MH) concerns obtain MH treatment. Federal and state policies have begun to support MH treatment in school settings. Initiatives have begun to ensure accessible MH services as the intersection of MH services and the education system has been more heavily scrutinized. In Broome County, school districts are looking to increase access to MH services. The Family & Children's Society is also responding to this need by creating School Based Mental Health Clinics.
