The Pennsauken School District received a $1.6 million grant this month to address mental health in the district.

The grant will be used to assess the current state of mental health services and improve mental health interventions and supports in the area through collaboration with local and national agencies. Rowan University will also play a part in increasing counseling services and connecting mental health providers with designated support personnel.

Pennsauken is one of 27 school districts nationwide to receive the grant from the U.S. Department of Education. It’s part of the Mental Health Demonstration Grant Program, a program aimed at addressing shortages of mental health services in high need schools.
