Money for mental counseling including in school safety grants

(NETWORK IN)  Indiana students could gain more access to mental-health counseling at school. The just-passed federal spending bill includes two-billion dollars in grants for school safety programs, including mental health assistance. Indiana will be applying for money to address what state school superintendent Jennifer McCormick says is a growing issue in schools across the state. She says having mental-health teams on campus could help prevent not only violence directed at other students, but suicides. School representatives from across the country will attend an Indiana school safety conference next month.
