The Affinity Legacy Community Grant Program has awarded NYSBHF $400,000 to support a program "Addressing the Soaring Behavioral Health Needs of Low-Income Public School Students" in 2023. Three organizations sponsoring school-based health centers in the 10-county Affinity service area will be selected to participate in the program, where they will receive training and coaching in the delivery of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in schools. Depending on the sponsoring organization's preference, the program may involve work in classrooms supporting teachers in use of DBT techniques, as well as therapy in the school-based health center. DBT is an evidence-based treatment model designed to help students cope with stresses and trauma from the ongoing pandemic as well as create resiliency that will serve them for a lifetime.
