Navigating school with a mental health issue is far from uncommon; 1 in 5 students have a mental health issue that keeps them from learning.

In public schools, there is only one school psychologist for every 1,400 students.
Author and psychologist Dr. Rebecca Branstetter joins Rollye James to break down what exactly a school psychologist does and how schools can better address mental health issues.
