Dive Brief:

Almost a third of students who considered visiting a school counselor, school-based therapist or school psychologist about issues outside of career services said they ended up not doing so because they didn't think their issues "were big enough to bother someone with" or felt like they would be judged, according to a nationally representative survey from Springtide Research Institute.
