LETTER: Warden SD right to address mental health

| November 2, 2023 1:30 PM

The Warden School District should be commended for securing funding to help address their students’ behavioral and mental health needs. Araceli Flores, the new student assistance professional, states that “many young people face significant challenges, often in silence …” Ms. Flores states that she will provide services to address, among other things, academics, and mental health.

In today’s economy, many children worry about the stress their parents experience. They see their parents working hard trying to make ends meet and provide for their basic needs. And some of this stress and worry can adversely affect children’s well-being. 

We, as a caring nation, can help by asking our members of Congress to foster economic security, early childhood development and the health of our children by supporting the expansion of the child tax credit. The CTC has offered millions of hardworking families the tools to provide safety and stability for their children. The CTC is one of the most powerful tools for investing in the well-being of our children.
