THE Public School System was awarded $1 million in Trauma Advised Student Advocacy or TASA grant to help promote mental health among teachers, students, and their families.

Dr. Yvonne Pangelinan, PSS associate commissioner for student support services, said they received a confirmation of the grant award from the National Institute of Health on April 21.

“This is more than timely, considering the crisis that we have all encountered — the storms and the Covid-19 pandemic,” she said, adding that PSS applied for the grant in February.

Pangelinan said PSS will begin conducting mental health training and support as soon as they receive the funds.

“We will begin the support for teachers, families, and students on some of the trauma that they have been experiencing,” she said, adding that the TASA program will last for 18 months.
