We talked to students. We ran surveys and got 1,000+ responses. Here are two examples of what students shared with us:

''[Counselors] seem overworked like they have too many students to be very helpful''

''With the high population at my and other high schools, it's simply too hard to actually have each student's concerns addressed. So possibly, having more mental health personnel/resources could help"

 

WE ARE DMV STUDENTS FOR MENTAL HEALTH REFORM
