THANK YOU! The Sequim School District wants to thank Olympic Personal Growth and Peninsula Behavioral Health for their investments in a community partnership with us. Without their help, we could not have been able to increase our mental health staff.
Instead, thanks to successful proposals, each organization received a grant from Clallam County via the legislative initiative known as the "Hargrove money". These two counselors will support our secondary students in the areas of chemical dependency (Rebecca Real) and mental health (Amalia Baker), respectively, and work in both the middle school and high school.
We are grateful to these two organizations and the services they can provide to students who need to decrease risk factors and increase protective factors.
