Schools can play an important role in addressing the unmet mental health needs of youth by potentially increasing access to care in a cost-effective manner. This venue provides unparalleled access to youth and exemplifies a single setting through which the majority of children can be reached.  This very timely issue provides a much-needed analysis of the types of situations in which schools can and must address the mental health needs of their students, and the methodology for doing so.  With an eye towards current technologies (articles cover telepsychiatry and web-based interventions), authors review school-based interventions for students suffering from post-traumatic stress-syndrome, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, ADHD, psychoses, substance abuse, and other disorders.  Of special interest are the articles covering bullying (including internet bullying) and mobilizing a crisis team after student death.
