Funding For White Salmon Schools Health Center
The White Salmon Valley Education Foundation has been selected by the Southwest Washington Accountable Community of Health to receive funding for a Medicaid Transformation Project focused on bringing mental health and substance use services directly to students and families in the White Salmon Valley School District for the upcoming 2019-20 school year. A portion of the $75,000 that the Foundation will receive will support a coordinator position that will aid the integration of a new school-based Health and Wellness Center in the district. The Coordinator will develop and manage programs to educate school staff on care pathways and processes, and support other professional development opportunities related to mental health, substance use disorder risks and early intervention. The project will be conducted in collaboration with local partners including NorthShore Medical Group, Comprehensive Healthcare, Skyline Family Medicine, Klickitat County Public Health, and the White Salmon Valley School District.
