Mental health services
Mental health services refers to an array of public and private services available for the maintenance of mehtal health and the treatment of mental disorders. Mental health services for children are a significant need. Estimates are that 12% of children under 18 have mental disorders, and estimates for socioeconomically disadvantaged children are even larger, 20% or higher. Unfortunately, many children end up not receiving the help they need because families lack financial means, transportation, or motivation. Providing mental health services for children and/or parents in schools that children attend is a way of improving accessibility to mental health services and preventing the development of serious emotional disorders.
