After years of “begging” the Legislature for more resources, Central Florida schools are getting millions of dollars to spend on mental health counselors and services for students this year — a result of the Parkland school shooting that left 17 people dead.
Each district is substantially increasing the number of counselors, social workers or psychologists; training personnel on warning signs; and sometimes offering parents educational sessions on mental health. Some districts are even setting aside money to cover uninsured and under-insured students so they can get additional mental health treatment in the community.
