Budget Cuts May Erode Gains in School Mental Health Services

"With no state budget and school beginning in less than a month, many Connecticut districts may have to cut back on recently expanded mental health services or make room for them in their own budgets."  
CASBHC collected student stories from different SBHCs and created photo flyers. The flyers were distributed throughout the Legislative session to each Legislator, and all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate. 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends the
implementation and maintenance of school-based health centers
(SBHCs) in low-income communities to improve educational and
health outcomes.
