Every person has dealt with stressors since the COVID-19 pandemic began, but none as apparent as students that had to adjust to unprecedented changes this past school year. Organizations like Volunteers of America are partnering up to continue providing behavioral health services to students right at school.
“We’re at 12 sites in total with us at nine sites and them at three, and hoping over time to expand even more so that we can really be where kids are,” said Sherrie Wilson Hinshaw, president and CEO of the volunteer organization.
The organization, Anchorage School District and Providence Medical Group Behavioral Health Services are working together to provide behavioral health resources to children, families and even teachers and clinicians in the schools.
