Internalizing Behaviors occur when students feel sad, worried, fearful, lonely, or hopeless. Internalizing behaviors can lead to depression and anxiety, poor school attendance, falling behind academically, and risk for suicidal ideation and attempts.

Interventions and supports for Internalizing Behaviors focus on strategies to decrease anxiety and/or depressive symptoms as well as improving self-esteem and coping skills.
