The Importance of Access to Mental Health services for our School Children

In order to holistically address the safety, security, and health needs of young learners, we need to have supportive services/systems in every environment that they interact with, i.e., the home, community, and school. Take a look at teenage pregnancy as an example. If we want to address the alarming rates of school attrition due to teen pregnancy, we must support families with the information, capacity, and time to discuss sexual and reproductive health with the children in their care.
