In March 2020, the Alabama Legislature provided requirements (HB341) for the school districts to employ a mental health services coordinator, based on the recommendations of the representatives, and was signed into law with Governor Kay Ivey in March 2020. During this session, research was shown that interventions conducted by comprehensive school-based mental health services had been associated with enhanced academic performance, decreased need for special education, fewer disciplinary encounters, increased engagement with school, and elevated rates of graduation.

The goal of Marshall County Schools Mental Health Services is to provide the necessary supports and interventions in a timely manner to ensure that a student's needs are being met. Mental health screening and/or assessment is offered to all students that are attending Marshall County schools with the Mental Health Collaboration between Mountain Lakes Mental Health Center. School-based mental health services are offered to all the students in need of additional counseling services outside the realm of the school counselor and within that home school setting.

If you feel your child would benefit from this, please email me.
