A Celebration of Mental Health Support in Our Schools
Laura Milius

Since 2018, the Behavioral Health in the Schools Initiative has boosted mental health services in Routt County schools. The partnership was spearheaded by the thought leadership and financial contributions of the Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation (CSFF), UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center (YVMC), and Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation (YVMCF) to support all Routt County school districts and students. The combined investment from UCHealth and CSFF since 2018 has been nearly $1.6M. This effort has integrated mental health education and support into our schools, fostering a stronger focus on well-being. The Yampa Valley Community Foundation and private donors have helped to sustain and expand the program since its inception. Let's acknowledge the progress made in creating a robust support system for students, including prevention efforts and targeted services for those in need.
