The Southeast Arkansas Community Foundation, an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation, recently awarded Mainline Health Systems a $500 grant for Mainline’s behavior health program at the Lakeside School District where Mainline has a school-based clinic.
The grant funds will be used to purchase therapy tools, books and resources, according to Amy Floyd, Mainline’s interim director of behavioral health.
“Students from Eudora, Lake Village, and surrounding areas will be served with updated resources concerning grief and loss, anger management, anxiety, depression, peer relationships, and improved decision making skills,” Floyd said. “We are thankful for grant funds that can enhance services provided to these children and address their mental health needs. Our children are one of our region’s greatest resources and we appreciate this direct investment into their lives.”
