Frontier Health is excited to announce that we will be hosting this year’s Regional School Mental Health Summit at the Kingsport City Schools Administrative Support Center. This event is for School Administrators and School Counselors throughout Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia (Lee, Scott, and Wise Counties).
This Summit will help connect School Administrators and Counselors with mental health resources, community members, and services provided by Frontier Health to help support the needs of children and youth throughout our region. Administrators and Counselors will also have an opportunity to share feedback on mental health service needs for their school system.
“Over the past two years of this pandemic, perhaps no other group has been challenged more with the growing mental health needs of our children than our school systems. A child’s behavioral health problems do not remain outside the walls of the school building but rather these issues drastically effect their education, socialization, physical health, and development. It has become even more imperative that we work collaboratively together as we each have valuable roles to address these growing mental health needs of our children. Collectively we are better equipped to help meet the needs of the children and families in our communities and that is the purpose in having this Regional School Mental Health Summit. “
Tim Perry, Sr. VP of Children’s Services
