Denver Public Schools Need A Mental Health Counselor
We demand that the Denver Public Schools Board of Education hire a full-time mental health counselor in every school, and that those counselors are predominately people of color, in order to be reflective of the students they will serve.
Our short term goal is to demand the DPS Board of education pass a resolution that establishes goals for whole child supports in the Denver Plan 2020. Striving towards this goal we believe a full-time mental health counselor who is representative of the students they serve is a step towards whole child support. A full-time mental health counselor is important because 1 in 5 K-12 students struggle with mental health in Denver Public Schools.
