Advocacy Opportunity for Everyone: Send a Letter About the Increasing Access to Mental Health in Schools Act
[Source; NASP Online
We have a growing mental health crisis among our young people, including the alarming rise in youth suicide rates, and schools play a critical role in meeting their needs. Unfortunately, we have a critical shortage of school psychologists and other school-employed mental health professionals that prevents many students from receiving the mental health supports they need to thrive and succeed in school, at home, and in life.This legislation is a critical step toward addressing the shortage and improving access to services by providing grants to create community partnerships between local education agencies and universities.
