Take Action:  Elementary & Secondary School Counseling Program (ESSCP)

We must urge Congress to fund the only existing school mental health grant program remaining in federal programs.The ESSCP allows school-employed mental health professionals - -- school social workers, school counselors, and school psychologists -- to work together to establish a comprehensive counseling program that helps to address barriers to learning and promote academic success.   Threats to the ESSCP continue through talks of ESEA Reauthorization and funding for Fiscal Year 2016; school year 2015-16.   We need critical advocacy from all professionals and families hoping to protect this vital program!    For complete  information on how to Take Action, click here.
