Mental Health

Comprehensive data on mental health status and needs of children in Sacramento County is limited, but an increasing number of providers and administrators are capturing client service and outcome data. The California Health Interview Survey found that teens report receiving counseling at a rate considerably higher than is experienced statewide.

Why is this important?

  • Untreated mental health conditions can lead to challenges with relationships, school, physical health, and law enforcement due to disruptive behavior.
  • Availability of services helps ensure that youth have the tools needed to address stressors that may impede emotional growth and well-being.

How are we doing?

  • Across grade levels, about one-third of students report experiencing periods of sad or hopeless feelings to the point that it interferes with routine tasks.
