Conference: 21st Century School Social Work - Changing the Discussion to Improve Mental Health in Our New York City Schools

 04 June
 Columbia University School of Social Work
 1255 Amsterdam Ave - 10027 - New York - United States
 Education Caucus at Columbia University School of Social Work
School social workers throughout New York City schools, New York State, and the entire country have felt the effects of mental health community services being dramatically reduced, changed, and privatized. As managed care dictates mental health needs, budgets reflect the lack of consistent funding for mental issues while students silently struggle without appropriate mental health help. The need for mental health services in schools have increased. The national discussion on school violence, bullying, and gun control have made it abundantly clear that we school social workers lack a voice against the demise and decreasing funding for consistent mental health and school social work services in our communities, which have hit an all time low. For many school social workers, we feel these decreases in services and school social workers have reached critical levels in our schools.
