The Youth Mental Health Action Team has launched their Mental Health Voucher Program in Dolores County. The team received funding from The Department of Social Services and The El Pomar Foundation to reimburse mental health providers for visits from local youth. The services will be provided virtually for the time being. Any youth, up to the age of 21 can utilize these vouchers for free behavioral health services up to 6 visits. The Team worked hard to get the program up and running for the start of the school year. On top of the usual stressors that many youth experience, the added impact of the pandemic and returning to school under new health and safety guidelines may put youth in a position where some professional guidance, or an impartial listening ear could be of great benefit.
