Tackling Education and Mental Health Disparities to Improve Health

The National Academy for State Health Policy released a new brief that explores strategies for addressing mental health and education disparities. As research grows about the underlying conditions that drive disparities, there is greater focus on developing approaches to improve educational attainment and health outcomes, especially among children of color.

The brief outlines various state policy levers that can be used to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in education and mental health that affect overall well-being. In addition to expanding mental health consultation programs to identify and address mental health issues in children, states can increase data collection efforts, build advisory groups to support collaboration, develop linguistic and cultural competency plans, and implement systemic interventions and policy change.
