The term of art used presently by professionals who specialize in this subject is “help-seeking”  – the focus is on identification of at-risk kids and getting them referred to the appropriate helping professionals. Referrals may be self-referrals or through the agency of their friends, family members, school staff or others. Staff and student education is offered to encourage active involvement of all members of the school community to safeguard each other’s wellbeing.
