Perry Mason Blankenship on Limitation of Vital Services in McDowell County

The only service to have flourished under these circumstances is tele-health individual counseling. Some of this has been made possible through the ability to utilize phone calls to meet demand. These moments have opened the door for us to help numerous students who were wrestling with trauma, suicidal ideations, and other mental health related issues. While the assessments that students are missing, such as those for special education services, are vitally important, the services that we have been able to provide continue to have real significance in the students’ lives.
