Providence Teams up with Renton Public Schools to Strengthen Student Access to Mental Health Services

As part of its ongoing commitment to improve Washington youth’s mental health and well-being, Providence announced plans to fund the Renton School District’s student mental health services over the next three years.

Funding comes from Providence’s Well Being Trust and it will enable the district to strengthen its mental
health support efforts by offering every child in all 27 Renton Public Schools access to virtual therapy
through a national school-based telehealth provider.

“We are incredibly proud of this partnership initiative, “said Arpan Waghray, M.D., CEO, Providence’s Well Being Trust. Our youth’s future success is partly driven by the quality of their health and wellness today. Providence and the district are focused on establishing short- and long-term mental wellness practices by creating an academic environment where students can prioritize their health and develop lifelong coping and well-being practices to support them for years to come.”
