Great news for DC children!!!
Jun 29, 2017 — Great news everyone!!!
Thanks in LARGE part to the momentum of this petition and the hard work of all of you, Councilmembers Vincent Gray and David Grosso led the charge in voting to amend the Mayor's budget, prohibiting the passage of this devastating plan that threatened the clinical services of so many children.
Help us THANK Councilmember's Gray and Grosso for their attention and hard work by signing this THANK YOU petition!
These public servants did an incredible job and we must show our love to encourage others to follow suit!
This amendment to the Mayor's budget specifically calls for a working group that includes school based mental health clinicians, community providers, parents and other valuable stakeholders to take part in a thorough reconstructing of a truly comprehensive school mental health delivery plan. The School Mental Health Program will continue to provide high quality clinical services in our dedicated schools while the working group builds a plan for the future. Most importantly, YOUR VOICES WERE HEARD! In these difficult political times it is reassuring that we still have elected officials who listen to the voices of their constituents.
Thanks you for your hard work and thank you from ALL the children of DC to whom you lent your voice!
