In this recent episode of Education Talk Radio's Equity & Access Podcast, Phyllis Jordan, Ass't Director of FutureEd at Georgetown and Dr. Travis Gayles, Hazel Chief Hazel Officer discuss the youth mental health crisis and how it is influencing student health and academic outcomes.
"It's all-hands-on-deck moment where everybody needs to focus on this...students are not going to learn and improve if they're not mentally healthy. And nothing's going to happen if they don't attend school. It takes families, it takes communities, it takes governments, and it takes students and teachers. We've got to recognize the crisis we're in." - Phyllis Jordan
