The Role of Student Services Personnel in Florida Schools: Creating Safe Schools through School-Based Mental Health Supports
The Florida Association of Student Services Administrators (FASSA) addresses how student services personnel contribute to safe schools by providing mental health supports to students. Representative Gayle Harrell, Chair of the Families Subcommittee, has recently requested information from superintendents regarding the mental health needs of public school students. We have a great opportunity and obligation to educate educational stakeholders and legislators on school-based mental heatlh this session.

A CALL FOR HELP FROM SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY SUPERVISORS!
Review the Public Policy and Professional Relation's page. Gene Cash is the committee's Chair and you will find contact information if you have any questions. Many of you have access to legislators and school lobbyists so this may assist in promoting important children's' and professional issues.
I would also like to invite you to join the FASP Supervisors' listserv. This is a closed listserv (so your email box is not flooded with junk mail!). We hope you will use it to communicate with other school psychologist supervisors as you wish to consult about the many common issues we face in our roles. When you post a message, it will go out to all enrolled members of the listserv. You will potentially receive responses from various supervisors across the state. To join this free service, just go on the Internet to http://groups.yahoo.com. Under "Join a Group" type "FASP-Supervisors" and follow directions to join. You will first need to have a Yahoo ID to join the listserv. For those of you who had already joined through e-groups, there have been some changes from Yahoo so you will need to convert from e-groups to Yahoo groups by following the instructions on the Yahoo site. Please feel free to contact me for further information.
