|On January 19th, eleven VOICE leaders held a listening session with Assistant Principals from Arlington County Public Schools. We introduced VOICE to these administrators, developed relationships, and had some deep conversations with them about their experiences on the front line of the youth mental health crisis every day. |
For next steps, VOICE leaders will follow up with listening sessions in individual school communities based on the relationships formed and have an upcoming listening opportunity with APS students. The team will also meet with Arlington County Health officials to review the status of their programming and hope to set up a time to meet with local hospital leaders.
