Schools keep hiring counselors, but students' stress levels are only growing
From Nov. 26:
California schools have beefed up their counseling staffs dramatically in the past few years, but the need for student mental health services — to address trauma related to fires, shootings and social media — has far outpaced counselors' ability to keep pace with student needs. Students at Saugus High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita were evacuated after a student opened fire, killing two classmates and himself and wounding three others. It was the 11th school shooting in the United States this year, according to the New York Times.
