2023 Youth Mental Health Report
Kids in Crisis
New data continues to reveal the mental health toll on youth from COVID-19, social media, mass violence, and the many other challenges kids face every day. While the phrase “mental health crisis” can be alarming for parents, the goal of this report is to shed light on this growing problem, help parents know how they can help their kids and understand what support is available for your family.
Burrell provides services inside schools in the Springfield area, serving 166,895 kids onsite in schools. This allows kids to receive the necessary treatment while preventing barriers to care such as transportation. As previously stated, 70 percent of kids who receive mental health care receive it in a school setting. This program is vital in providing early intervention and helping kids get the help they need. In addition to mental health benefits, partnerships between schools and community partners have proven to enhance academic success, improve attendance, create a positive school climate, improve discipline rates and increase graduation rates.
