School and district administrators play a key role in identifying strategies that can support students dealing with mental health challenges.

The EdWeek Research Center surveyed these educational leaders and high school students to learn more about their perspectives on the role of social media, absenteeism, and other factors in students’ emotional well-being.

This report presents findings about student mental health based on survey results.
