Organizing school mental health services for prevention

Why prevention?

Schools are busy places. One school psychologist serves hundreds of children. There is a Farside cartoon one of my professors is fond of: It’s a building on fire, floating down a river, about to fall off a waterfall, with a sign that says “Crisis Clinic”.

Ask a group of people who work in a high needs school if they feel like this cartoon reflects their day to day life and watch the hands go up.
