Description:

A significant proportion of youth develop a mental disorder by adolescence, but most do not receive care. Children of racial and ethnic minorities are especially vulnerable, as they receive fewer and lower quality services. School‐based mental health interventions, where school staff assume frontline provider roles, represent a potential option to reduce these disparities.
