Chippewa Falls (WQOW)- A local school district is giving students and families a new tool this school year.
Jamie Ganske with the school district, said they’re offering students and their families four free counseling sessions.
The sessions could address anything from divorce, discipline issues, depression, bullying and unplanned pregnancy.
"This will help students and families because if there was an insurance barrier, or some of the counselors would be able to meet right in our school buildings during school hours," Ganske said. "That eliminates a travel barrier as well. Just having the four free sessions is really going to be key to this that it’s available to anyone."
The Cardinal Care Student and Family Assistance Program is funded through a school-based mental health grant.
The new program launches September 1.
