PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A student-led report found that Oregon high school students cited mental health services among their top policy concerns.

Data compiled by Oregon Student Voice shows that 40 percent of students listed mental health resources as the most important issue for schools.

The student-led organization surveyed about 2,200 students from 42 Oregon high schools, gauging students' opinions on teacher quality, support services, school climate and ability to influence education policy.
