    In the past decade, incidence of mental health issues in children increased at an alarming rate.  COVID intensified student anxiety and depression, especially for children at risk.  Schools have a unique opportunity to provide the support necessary to build student resilience so that they can not only cope effectively with the demands of school but build the foundation for a lifetime of improved health and mental health outcomes.
