S.C. House mulling more mental health counselors in schools


By Jamie Self — jself@thestate.com

COLUMBIA — House budget writers want to know the cost of putting mental health counselors in every public school.

The question came up when state Department of Mental Health director John Magill presented his agency’s budget request to a panel of House budget writers Wednesday.

Magill told the committee that with more money, he “would make sure there is at least some presence” of school-based mental health services “in every school district.”

State Rep. Murrell Smith, R-Sumter, chairman of the subcommittee, said Thursday the budget panel is exploring ways to expand mental health services, and school-based services are a “viable option.”

Ft. Myers, FL. – The Board of Directors of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Lee County, would like to publicly announce Kathy Sager as the Interim Executive Director effective January 18, 2013. Kathy has served as the Program Coordinator for NAMI Lee County the past eleven months and willingly accepted this interim position. “We welcome Kathy to her new position and are confident she will be a dedicated and conscientious leader”, stated Diane Kratt, Board President.

“I am pleased to be able to continue in my passion and empathy for families with loved ones who are struggling with a mental illness. I came to NAMI one year ago with seven years of experience, helping to change the mind set associated with the stigmas attached to our consumers with a diagnosis and our homeless population here in Lee County.” Sager stated. “I have worked this past year as NAMI Lee Coordinator bringing all programs, information and referral, administration, and volunteers to the next level. I will continue to bring forth education and awareness as Interim Executive Director through NAMI’s mission and vision.”

About NAMI Lee County
Mission:
The mission of NAMI Lee County is to provide timely and accurate information, education and support to individuals, providers, and community members regarding mental health and wellness. NAMI Lee County will advocate at all levels to ensure that all persons affected by mental illnesses are treated fairly, respectfully and in a timely manner.
Vision:
NAMI Lee County recognizes that the key concepts of recovery, resiliency, and support are essential to improve the wellness and quality of life for all persons affected by mental illnesses. Mental illnesses should not be an obstacle to a full and meaningful life.
In 2012, 3800 people called our Mental Health Information and Referral line, contacted us through email or walked into our outreach offices seeking help with a mental health question; 100% received support. During this same time 98 adults with a mental illness learned how to better manage their illness and their lives through our peer led NAMI Peer to Peer classes. Also during this time many family members learned how to adjust and help their loved one with a mental illness by completing our peer led NAMI Family to Family classes. Last year we had 156 sheriff and city police officers complete Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT). CIT is a 40 hour, nationally recognized mental health intervention and officer safety class. This brings the total number of CIT officers trained to date to more than 500.

Mandate School Counselors for Grades K-12


Urgent: 

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/mandate-school-counselors-grades-k-12/lV6SHgCR


There is a national grassroots effort currently underway to mandate school counselors. The first step that is being done is to petition the Obama administration. Below is a link to sign that petition as well as the petition text. You do not have to be a school counselor or live in any particular state to sign; just someone who believes that schools need counselors. Just click on the link to go directly to the site. But do it quickly - all signatures must be in by Jan. 14 -- TODAY -- to count!

Mandate School Counselors for Grades K-12
School counselors are uniquely trained to identify and assist students who are having academic and social difficulties, to work with students in crisis, and to collaborate with teachers and parents to support and advocate for student success. There are currently 26 states that do not mandate counselors in all schools, grades K-12, and many others who have unrealistic student/counselor ratios which make it impossible for counselors to reach all students equally. Let's do something now to help the mental health and well-being of our children by requiring all schools to have counselors available to all students, and by mandating a student/counselor ratio that makes effective counseling accessible to all students.

Children Exposed to Violence


NCJFCJ
          Logo

Dear Colleagues,

I am honored to share with you the final report of Attorney General Eric Holder’s Task Force
 on Children Exposed to Violence. The report presents more than 50 recommendations for launching a coordinated national response to address children’s exposure to violence—as victims or witnesses—in their homes, schools, and communities.



At a time when more than 60 percent of America’s children are exposed to violence, crime, or abuse each year, protecting our children and raising public awareness about the seriousness of this problem is a top priority for the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and the entire U.S. Department of Justice.

It is my sincere hope that we can all work together to end, in the Attorney General’s words, the “epidemic of violence that robs our youth of their childhood.”
