Part 2: Children’s Mental Health Challenges with Jerry Barone – Episode 72

This episode resumes the conversation with Dr. Graham Taylor and Jerry Barone of Effective School Solutions (ESS). They discuss other ESS programs including, virtual therapeutic support, crisis assessment, and re-entry solutions, mental health vision, planning the support, and their successes. Last year through February, this year, Effective School Solutions had 89% of students fully engaged in virtual services, 16% increase in GPA, absences were down 35%, disciplinary incidents were reduced by 38% and the retention of their students in the districts was around 99%. As we look toward the re-entry challenges back into the classroom for Fall 2021, our goal should be to provide our students, teachers, and parents with tools to self-regulate and as a result, many kids will be just fine.
