No, we are not talking about the shortage of nurses…although, there is a shortage of those as well. Instead, we are referring to the increasing demand for school psychologists.

The Growing Shortage of School Psychologists

According to the National Association of School Psychologists, we needed almost 9000 psychologists in 2010. Furthermore, the cumulative shortage is now projected to increase from 15,000 to 20,000 by the year 2020 with no slow in sight.

The Increasing Need for School Psychologists

With adolescent suicide rates on the rise and bullying incidents surfacing on campuses nationwide, the need for school psychologists in has never been more apparent. In fact, the shortage of school psychologists is preventing students from getting the emotional support and clinical therapy that they need to heal and succeed.
