The pandemic-fueled rise in trauma, depression, and anxiety among students and school staff, combined with a lack of mental health supports, means schools will be dealing with COVID-19’s fallout for years to come. Education Week staff and guest experts examine how schools are turning their attention and resources to the challenge and what the research says about what they’re up against in getting students and staff the help they need.
