Students in six Atlanta public schools will have greater access to mental health services thanks to a $ 1.95 million grant awarded to the district.

The sites obtained the five-year resources from the School-Based Healthcare Solutions Network.

The money will be used to make specialists in the area available in schools starting next school year.

Two middle schools will participate in the program: John Lewis Invictus Academy and Long Middle School. In addition, four high school students will also receive the additional services: Douglass, Mays, South Atlanta, and Washington.

Officials noted that those six centers were chosen because they met the criteria for the grant, which targets schools with a high percentage of low-income students, students struggling with unexcused absences, chronic behavior problems, social isolation, and emotional inconveniences such as anxiety and depression.
