The global pandemic is only exacerbating an ongoing mental health crisis for young people. That was the message Monday night from officials with Effective School Solutions, which the Flemington-Raritan Regional School District has partnered with to help service its students.
Superintendent Kari McGann highlighted ways in which the Flemington-Raritan Regional School District has recently gone about tackling mental health issues. The mental health of its students and families is an area McGann immediately sought to address upon taking over as superintendent in 2018, she said. She added that it is a topic she regularly discusses with the superintendents from Readington Township School District (K-8) and Hunterdon Central Regional High School, as it is a “crisis” in school districts across the country.
