Tell Congress: Support Increased Mental Health Services for Students

Published by

This legislation, introduced by a great friend of public education, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, would:

  • Assist in hiring school-based mental health services providers to provide school-based mental health services to students and implement evidence-based practices to improve school climate
  • Implement strategies to recruit and retain school-based mental health services providers through salary stipends, relocation benefits, professional development opportunities, and other incentives.
  • Supplement, not supplant non-Federal funds that would otherwise be used for school-based mental health services.

Please email your representative right now and ask them to support the Expanding Mental Health Services Access in Schools Act by signing on as a co-sponsor.
