    Guided by Legislation and supported by Strong Schools...Strong Communities referendum, the Department of Behavioral and Mental Health expands access to mental health support and increases awareness of mental health through 3 key messages:

    • Mental health is our ability to live fully, engage with others, and respond to challenges.
    • It’s OK to be OK. It’s OK to not be OK. It’s OK to ask for help.
    • Schools have highly trained and skilled professionals in place to support student mental health.
