MEB Health Indicators

Definition:

The Mental, Emotional, Behavioral (MEB) health planning indicators reflect the need for social-emotional development and learning competencies (SEDL) of children in primary school grades. The indicators are: 

  1. Number and percent of students in grades 1-6 receiving free or reduced-price lunch.
  2. Number and percent of students in grade 3 not scoring at the proficient level in English Language Arts (ELA)
  3. Number and percent of students in grade 3 not scoring at the proficient level in math
  4. Number and percent of students in grades 1-6 receiving special education services and have an MEB- related challenge code (includes Autism Spectrum Disorders, Emotional Disturbance, Learning Disability, Intellectual Disability, Other Health Impairment and Multiple Disabilities)
  5. Number and rate of school suspensions/expulsions/removals per 1,000 students with an MEB disability in grades K-12 

 

Significance:

MEB health promotion and disorder prevention efforts are designed to reduce a common set of core risk factors and strengthen portective factors to reduce multiple MEB disorders, including substance abuse, conduct disorders, anxiety disorders and depression. These indicators can be part of needs assessments to improve data-driven decision making efforts. Health planners can use them to identify those communities at highest risk and prevalence for MEB disorders and plan for social-emotional development improvement interventions that promote improved MEB health and well-being.
