More than two million young people in the United States have emotional/behavioral disabilities.

YOUTH WITH EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCE ARE 13 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE BEEN ARRESTED WHILE STILL IN SCHOOL COMPARED TO STUDENTS WITH OTHER DISABILITIES.
ONE IN 10 YOUTH IN THE UNITED STATES EXPERIENCE A MENTAL DISORDER SEVERE ENOUGH TO LIMIT DAILY FUNCTIONING IN THE FAMILY, SCHOOL, AND COMMUNITY SETTING.

DROPOUTS FROM THE CLASS OF 2008 WILL COST THE NATION MORE THAN $319 BILLION IN LOST WAGES OVER THE COURSE OF THEIR LIFETIMES.

INCREASING THE GRADUATION AND COLLEGE MATRICULATION RATES OF MALE STUDENTS BY FIVE PERCENT COULD LEAD TO COMBINED SAVINGS AND REVENUE OF ALMOST $8 BILLION EACH YEAR IN REDUCED CRIME-RELATED COSTS.
