Were is the money for more mental health?by Debra Brandt on 02/14/16
I haven't seen any extra money for mental health. But if that promise every comes through I think a good place to spend it would be hiring enough full time counselors in the school system to offer all kids free counseling. I would also like these counselors to be mentors to these kids. Because I, as a mental health counselor, know that kids do not open up and the teacher, who probably has a better idea who may need this service, should be a good referral source. But because we want no kid left behind, we want all kids to seek counseling and mentorship from a licensed counselor.
