New Survey Confirms the Pandemic Continues to Impact Student Mental Health

Effective School Solutions (ESS), the country’s leading provider of school-based mental health services for K-12 school districts, has released the findings of its 2nd annual national survey about the impact of COVID-19 on student and teacher mental health. 158 educators representing over 67 school districts from across the U.S. took part in the study. Key insights from the survey include:
Duncan Young, CEO of ESS, stated, “While extensive research over the last 18 months pointed to the negative mental health impact of the pandemic, this data confirms that students and educators are indeed in crisis. It is heartening, however, to see districts begin to adopt a more proactive approach to addressing student mental health needs.”
