In this afterword, the authors emphasize that all school-based mental health providers must be advocates for the emotional well-being of our youth. They emphasize that advocates are made, not born, and discuss specific knowledge and skills necessary for effective advocacy. They then discuss three top advocacy priorities: (a) increasing the number of mental health professionals in the schools; (b) promoting programs, policies, training, and research that supports the emotional well-being of youth; and (c) supporting models, frameworks, and positions developed by the National Association of School Psychologists, the American Psychological Association, and many other mental health associations that support children’s needs. In closing, they discuss how to be advocates for all children and, most important, our most vulnerable student populations at the personal, local (including school), state, national, and international levels.
