One in five students show signs of mental problems, yet their symptoms are often ignored or misunderstood. Left unacknowledged, these symptoms can develop into debilitating disorders that plague our education system. WAMU 88.5 education reporter Kavitha Cardoza recently partnered with NPR to report on the Washington region’s experience with mental health issues in school. We discuss her findings with her and several mental health experts.
