Abstract

Most schools offer some type of school-based mental health service to students, and there is a growing body of empirically rigorous studies examining the effects on academic and mental health outcomes for students. However, students classified as having emotional disturbances are under-represented in these studies. Using a convenience sample of four different types of school-based mental health programs, changes in achievement levels and social and emotional functioning in youth with emotional disturbances served in special education (n = 148) were examined. Longitudinal results reveal there was improvement in either the emotional or social functioning of these youth in all four programs, while results for improvement in achievement levels were less consistent.

RESULTS reveal that in the targeted sample of programs with intensive or multifaceted services, there was improvement in academic as well as social and emotional functioning in these youth. Implications for school-based mental health services are discussed.
