COVID-19, along with heightened racial trauma, has caused unprecedented disruption in the lives of youth aged 10-18, leading them to experience increases in mental health concerns. Addressing these negative impacts requires that education leaders, school districts, state and local decision makers, parents, teachers, and youth work together to ensure that young people have the support and resources needed to address their mental, emotional, and behavioral health needs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This rapid expert consultation identifies school-based strategies for addressing the mental health and well-being challenges among youth that arose or were exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Included are strategies designed to support the holistic needs not only of youth but also of educators and staff.
