Mental wellness is critical to student success. Through a 30-school pilot program jointly funded by the Howard County Public School System and the Horizon Foundation, students can more easily access mental health services during the school day, including one-on-one counseling services. Tell the Board of Education #MentalHealthMatters and urge them to protect funding for this program!
