We often idealize childhood as a time free of stress and yet the truth is that kids face all sorts of challenges, and the place where they work through many of those challenges is a school. As kids face mental health challenges, how well are our schools serving them? Can we possibly be serving youth better? What types of services work? We talk with experts Dr. Anna Yaros and Dr. Jim Trudeau about these questions in the first of a two-episode series on mental health research and education.
