Door County Schools Receive $75,000 Grant for Mental Health Services

The Door County Consortium of schools – including all the districts in the county – was awarded $75,000 to provide school-based mental health services. They were among 64 school districts in the state sharing in $3.25 million in state grant funding. All of the funded projects involve collaboration with community mental health providers and other stakeholders to create comprehensive support systems for children, youth and families. Grants fund activities for the 2018-19 school year and range from $11,000 to the grant maximum of $75,000. During the grant period, recipients will collect data on the number of students who receive mental health contact by school mental health providers and the number of students who receive contact or service from a community mental health provider.
