(Dover, DE) In his weekly message, taped at Legislative Hall, the Governor emphasizes the need to support our children by investing in increasing the availability of qualified mental health professionals in Delaware, a point he also stressed in his State of the State speech on Thursday.

“Only three of our state’s middle schools have full-time professionals responsible for the mental health needs of students at that critical age. That’s a huge gap in our care for adolescents,” said Governor Markell during his State of the State. “This investment will help ensure our kids get the services they deserve. Over the long term, it will also help Delaware build a better private network of child mental health providers.”

Every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
