TROY, NY (NEWS10) – The New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) announced in August that the Lansingburgh Central School District had received $2,388,300 and approved to work with St. Catherine’s Center for Children will provide student mental health services with Rensselaer County. St. Catherine’s Center for Children will be a resource for Lansingburgh students and their families through this partnership.
Through this grant, the partnership will enable St. Catherine’s to perform necessary mental health assessments, providing a link to community services in the district for students of all ages. Together, the District, Rensselaer County and St. Catherine’s will jointly seek to improve the mental well-being of students and their families. They will offer preventative efforts to reduce the number of presenting issues, while connecting students to the support they critically need.
“Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment where high expectations, rigor, lifelong learning and civic responsibility are developed and encouraged,” said Dr. Antonio Abitabile, Superintendent of Schools of Lansingburgh. “With St. Catherine’s, we will be able to ensure the greatest likelihood of mental health success for all students in the district.
The grant, which is part of an additional initiative by the Office of Mental Health, was jointly written by the Foundation of St. Catherine’s Center for Children and the Lansingburgh Central School District.
