Abstract

Four years of psychiatric services provided to seven secondary schools have produced qualitative changes in the schools and increased teacher acceptance of psychiatric consultation about students. More students were seen each year. Teachers and administrators in some schools have indicated enthusiasm and have cited examples of students who have been helped by their psychiatrists. An unanticipated finding is that the highest attrition occurred among the "experimental" students—those whom the project singled out for special attention and help.
