Testimony: Performance Oversight, DBH – School Based Mental Health (FY18)

One of the best ways to improve access to mental health care is to provide services where children are. Counseling services in school or at the school building can make a huge difference for the children who need them. In addition, prevention services and lower level services provided in the school can help children from escalating and needing high level and acute services. Children’s Law Center Policy Director Sharra Greer testifies about school based mental health during the DBH oversight hearing today.
