According to CDC

                * During 2019, approximately one in five (18.8%) Texas HS youths seriously considered attempting suicide.

                * One in six (15.7%) Texas HS students had made a suicide plan.

                * One in 40 (2.%%) Texas HS students made a suicide attempt requiring medical treatment.

                * 34% feeling sad or hopeless.

                * 10% of Texas HS students have experienced sexual violence (1 out of 10).

The students behind these numbers make it crucial for schools to play a  critical role in addressing children’s mental health. Addressing student mental health helps to prevent suicide, increase academic performance, improve behavior and supports the entire child.
