The County of Marin recently received a $4 million grant to provide additional mental and behavioral health services for youth in San Rafael and Novato high schools!

The $4 million grant has not been disbursed to CBOs at this point, however, Huckleberry Youth Programs was approached by the San Rafael High Schools to provide services under a separate grant that funds the same overall project goals of youth health and wellness coordination in the county. 

Under the separate grant, Huckleberry will provide a coordinator to screen youth in San Rafael's high schools for mental health and substance use needs. The coordinator will then link youth to Huckleberry and other services as appropriate. San Rafael's hope is to eventually create Wellness Centers, with this project as a preliminary model.
