Hogan Announces Post-Pandemic Mental Health Initiative

May 7th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan on Thursday announced a $25 million initiative aimed at helping school-age students recover from the pandemic's destructive effects on mental and emotional health. The initiative, called Project Bounce Back, will include the creation of six regional crisis teams that will help local school systems care for young people who are struggling. The project will also expand the reach of the Maryland Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs, Hogan said, with a focus on schools serving low-income populations and rural areas.
