Mental Health in Littleton

Public schools in Littleton have decided to shift school hours to better match how young people naturally sleep. Beginning in the fall of 2018, elementary schools will begin one hour earlier. Meanwhile, middle schools and high schools will begin one hour later than they usually do. Numerous studies suggest children who do not get adequate sleep are at higher risk for depression, inattention, risk-taking behaviors, and suicidal ideation. District officials believe the time adjustments will have a positive impact on youth mental health and academic performance.

In 2017, Littleton experienced two student suicides in two days. Since 2013, Littleton has spent $800,000 to hire mental health counselors. The city later started a program to help children who lack health insurance receive mental health counselling.
