by Huff, Brianne A., M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 109; 1493030
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the current state of mental health services within the California public school system. Currently the research reveals a gap of knowledge about mental health care in the schools, particularly as it pertains to minority students. The researcher sought to fill these gaps through the distribution of a survey to mental health care providers within two districts in California. The researcher identified how districts currently serve students' mental health needs and how students are able to access those services, particularly minority students. The researcher found that there are barriers to mental health, funding is limited, caseloads do not reflect school diversity, and overall School Based Mental Health Care Programs are struggling to succeed.
