Mental Health in Queens

Emotional distress among school-age children is a major concern in Queens and other areas of New York City (NYC). In the 2016-2017 school year, there were 9,385 school incidents that required a police or safety agent. Nearly 29% of incidents involved a child in crisis who needed to be taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation. 

There were noticeable racial differences within the students sent for evaluation. Black students made up almost half of the children taken to the hospital, despite making up only 27% of NYC’s student population. White students accounted for 5% of crisis cases, though they comprise 15% of the student population. Police were twice as likely to use handcuffs on black students than white ones.

School, law enforcement, and city officials believe more mental health professionals are needed in schools. School staff may also benefit from mental health and de-escalation training. Access to mental health services is a concern for some people in Queens. Eleven percent of Queens residents under age 65 do not have health insurance.
