N.H. schools seek to address mental health issues among students

High school officials are rolling out programs to help combat depression, anxiety and other mental health issues among New Hampshire students.

Exeter High School Principal Jim Tremblay told the Portsmouth Herald students will see new mental health services this year to combat what he describes as an uptick in those issues.

The U.S. Surgeon General’s Office says 1 in 5 adolescents will experience a serious mental health issue during their high school career. For many students, proactive counseling and individual attention may be the keys to keeping them from dropping out of school.

Many schools are taking proactive roles to stem the tide of those issues. Dover and Portsmouth high schools are providing individualized, intensive programs to help students work through their problems.
