Program Proposal

Action Needed

Virginia HB1735 proposes to create a Commission on Student Behavioral Health.  The purpose is to establish a suicide prevention hotline, review school counselor ratio, review roles and responsibilities of school psychologists and other professionals, as well as examine the efficacy and costs, training, and other issues around behavioral health.  Since this committee can impact future roles and responsibilities of school psychologists, it's imperative to have our voices heard!
