New MO HealthNet policy enhances access to behavioral health services in school settings

Mental health behavioral health

Schools have a new opportunity to meet students’ behavioral health needs, thanks to the advocacy efforts of Missouri School Boards’ Association (MSBA) School-Based Health Center Task Force and the continuing efforts of the emerging state affiliate of national School-Based Health Alliance: Show-Me School-Based Health (SMSBH).

Schedule your health screenings

For going on 20 years, I’ve worked as a communicator in the health industry. I’ve written countless letters to the editor, newsletter articles, blogs, social media posts on whatever national “week” or “month” it is. This week is no different. Mother’s Day kicked off National Women’s Health Week. Our blog administrator asked that I write […]
