Fund Mental Health Support for Kids
COVID has disproportionately affected young people. Of Stanwood Camano School District's 4,522 students, there are several unique languages spoken and 30% of students live in low income. Equitable access to YMCA before and after school programs for children K-12, inclusive of Behavioral Health professionals, will play a critical role in ensuring students and families have access to the variety of support opportunities and social-emotional learning needed to reintegrate into school and community confidently.
Anxiety, stress and, health concerns are just a few of the serious issues facing kids today. Infusing mental health counselors into our programs can help kids unpack those big emotions and allow kids to get back to being kids.
