Key features

  • Describes a range of common mental health issues that affect children and young adults in clear and jargon-free language
  • Includes general guidelines and more specific strategies for intervention
  • Addresses the critical issues of culture and collaboration
  • Will be the first book on the topic designed specifically for school counselors
  • Mental health issues are becoming more prevalent: studies show that 20% of school-aged children exhibit some type of mental health disorder, and up to 70% of youth in the juvenile justice system do.
