Appleton schools get grant to help mental health services for students

Read Time:2 Minute, 30 Second


APPLETON – The Appleton Area School District is getting a $40,000 grant as one of four Wisconsin districts chosen for a pilot program to help connect private philanthropy with school-based mental health initiatives. 

WEA Member Benefits Trust — a statewide insurance and financial services organization for educators — and sister organization WEA Trust selected Appleton and the other three districts to participate in the pilot because of their current student mental health services. 

Appleton was chosen not only for its services but for the existing community partnerships and track record of support in the Fox Valley, said Steve Goldberg, executive director of the WEA Member Benefits Foundation. 

“We’re not the one stoking the fire under this engine,” Goldberg said. “School districts are hungry for this.”
