MENTAL HEALTH

1 in 20.

 

According to the 2021 Iowa Youth Survey, 1 in 20 young people across the state of Iowa will have attempted suicide in the past year.

 

As a member of the Ankeny School Board, I will advocate for hiring more mental health professionals to be placed at the different schools in the district.

 

We also need to offer training to teachers and faculty as well as ensure they have all the resources necessary to handle an emergency, as they are frequently the ones on the front lines of this crisis.
