MADISON (WKOW) — A new resource center is aiming to help meet mental health needs of Wisconsin students.
The Wisconsin Center for Resilient Schools started services this week.
It’s a state-run service providing free coaching to public, private and charter schools and districts throughout Wisconsin.
The project coordinator says it couldn’t have come at a better time.
“We have seen the mental health has been on a rise, children being diagnosed especially six through 17, so there’s also an increase in suicide rates,” said Future Cain.
The teams work directly with schools to help improve mental health systems and strategies.
The center’s resources are all virtual for now, to help as many students and schools as possible.
