DULUTH, MN -- On Wednesday, Thrive Range announced the organization's future mental health initiatives after one year of serving the Iron Range.
In a virtual meeting, project co-leader Josh Gorham announced a two-year action plan to offer consultation and resources to schools for suicide prevention.
"I think that what I've learned over the last year is that school districts have a lot on their plate, and they are doing several things already to support the mental well being of students," Gorham said.
Thrive Range offers many mental health resources such as crisis care and free online therapy.
The initiative was started to fill a void in a rural area in need of these services.
The organizations also announced webinars for school staff, as well as 40 hours of free continuing education credit.
