Together, we can make a difference in the lives of Minneapolis youth.
20% of Minneapolis youth have a mental health concern that creates an obstacle to learning. Our school-based counseling and therapy services are designed to support and enhance educational outcomes for students at risk, as well as promote emotional well-being. During the past school year, we provided 11,000 school-based mental health services to over 500 students and their families.
Research conducted by Minneapolis Public Schools has shown that school-based mental health services have impacted students' learning in a positive way by increasing access - a mere 15% are able to follow through on referrals to outside community agencies, compared with 85-90% of referrals to our in-school services.
Additionally, research studies have shown that school-based mental health services are correlated with:
- Lower suspension rates
- Increased attendance
- Improved grades
Although we have secured funding to support full-time mental health clinicians in 16 schools, there are still unmet and ongoing needs. Please consider supporting our mission through a financial contribution.
