Nathaniel von der Embse, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of school psychology at the University of South Florida and co-chair of the National Association of School Psychologists Government and Professional Relations Workgroup (NASP GPR). Dr. von der Embse utilizes a social justice framework to examine the intersection of education policy and school mental health. One out of every 4 or 5 students will display a significant mental health problem over the course of their lifetime, and those students can be identified early with considerable accuracy if educators are given the right training and tools. Unfortunately, most schools rely on reactive methods, like office discipline referrals, to figure out which students need behavioral and mental health services. Should schools stop waiting for red flags and act sooner?
