The Georgia Apex Program recognizes that schools are a natural environment for identification and intervention and aims to reduce the number of youth with unmet mental health needs. The program supports community mental health providers to partner with schools and provide school-based mental health services, including direct student services, professional development for school staff, and opportunities for mental health promotion and awareness . The Apex Program’s goals are to increase access to youth mental health services, to provide early detection of mental health needs in childhood and adolescence, and to strengthen coordination between community-based mental health providers and local schools.

I do wish there were more bilingual CPSs here in Georgia. There is a very underserved community here in Georgia who are Spanish-speaking community in desperate need for mental health services -- including citizens, residents, visa-holders, and the undocumented. I wish there would be a focus (even a small one) in making a difference in these communities.
