WSASP has signed on to a letter to Congress requesting $1 billion to support new competitions of the Mental Health Service Professionals Demonstration Grant and the School Based Mental Health Services Grant in FY23. These two funding streams support efforts to address workforce shortages of school employed mental health professionals and increase access to comprehensive school mental health services across the country. These services are needed now more than ever and these grants are supporting amazing work to increase access to school psychologists!
Original signers include the American Psychological Association, American School Counselor Association, Mental Health America, National Association of School Psychologists, Sandy Hook Promise, and the School Social Work Association of America.
