Efficacité des services de santé mentale en milieu scolaire pour les élèves du primaireAuthor(s): Sanchez, A. L., Cornacchio, D., Poznanski, B., Golik, A. M., Chou, T., & Comer, J. S. (2018)
Une proportion importante de jeunes développent un trouble de santé mentale avant l’adolescence, mais la plupart d’entre eux ne reçoivent pas de soins. Les enfants qui font partie de minorités raciales et ethniques sont particulièrement vulnérables, car ils reçoivent moins de services, et ceux-ci sont de moins bonne qualité. Les interventions en santé mentale en milieu scolaire, dans le cadre desquelles le personnel scolaire assume le rôle de fournisseur de première ligne, représentent une option qui pourrait permettre de réduire ces écarts.
