Current Initiatives

The Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency, in cooperation with Annapolis-area middle schools, has launched a School-Based Mental Health Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to promote a successful transition from middle school to high school for children with a mental illness. In addition to school-based counseling services, students and their families can also participate in summer programs that build coping skills, social skills, and improve communication. Parent education programs are available as well, which help parents identify the ways in which they can support their child's intellectual, social, and emotional growth. To find out more about this initiative, call 410-222-7858.5
