Nebraska lawmakers looking to combat the dramatic rise in children with mental health conditions
They say it's been made much worse by this ongoing pandemic
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Later today, state lawmakers will be discussing how to deal with the significant rise in children diagnosed with mental health conditions.
One proposal would make sure there is someone at every single Nebraska school who is able to connect families with local services that could help with behavioral problems, which have been heightened by the pandemic.
If the bill is passed, school districts would need to have at least one of these people in place by August 2023.
