"Our children's success in the classroom is more than just test scores, and we must invest more in programs that are working to support our students across the state."

Those are the words of Oregon Sen.

Jeff Merkley in a press release announcing $1,613,898 in funding for training programs for school-based mental health providers.

The Department of Education will be awarding Portland State University and Oregon State University a combined total of $1,613,898 to support training programs for school-based mental health providers under the Mental Health Service Professionals Demonstration Program.

"Mental health care is essential health care, especially for school-aged kids, which is why I have fought to put more providers in schools," says Merkley, who is the author of the Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Act.

Oregon State University will be awarding $424,097 for the Promoting and Advancing Training of High Desert School Counselors (PATH-SC) project to recruit a pipeline of diverse school counseling graduates, train PATH-SC interns in culturally responsive school-based mental health delivery, and place them in high needs schools and match with a mentor supervisor, and then employ PATH-SC graduates in school counseling positions in high-needs schools," reports Oregon Public Broadcasting.
