A quick notice from Sheri Williamson. For those wondering about “mental health” and why it is important, I will be posting more about it in the next month or two.
The next mental health forum is Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 7-8pm in board room at the Mellon Building. Parents will again be invited to attend, but a strong emphasis has been placed on Unit 4 administrators, staff, and faculty attending. Dr. Wiegand and her executive team of assistant superintendents will be in attendance. They must be a part of the conversation as well. I would like for them to hear the same information that was presented at the January meeting. Some ideas have already been discussed and actions have been taken to begin consideration and even implementation. I believe there are still more ways that collaboration can occur and would love to have a 2nd opportunity to discuss those options. This is not only about services for youth as early intervention is my primary goal, but also about services for families. Please send this out to parents at your schools. I would love to see a strong turnout with parents as well. Let me know if you can attend.
