Policy Agenda Item 8

Implement sustainable funding mechanisms for school-based, community-based, and faith-based mental health and substance use services, including health promotion, standardized screening, connection to comprehensive services, and outcome tracking.

  • Policymakers can make a commitment to fund programs and implement laws that will enable our young people to reach their full potential.
  • Parents can establish a regular time to check in with your children.
