On May 21 in the courtyard of Wellesley High School, Gov. Maura Healey and Sec. Kate Walsh of the Department of Health and Human Services announced a new initiative supporting students’ mental health. The Healey-Driscoll administration will make an unprecedented investment in the Bridge for Resilient Youth in Transition (BRYT) program, an in-school program supporting students who have fallen behind academically due to challenges with their mental health. Using the WHS Bridge program as a model, the administration is investing $13 Million to establish similar programs in other communities.

The Governor met privately with Bridge program coordinators Lindsey Yamaguchi and Adam Diliberto in the Bridge room, along with a small group of current and former Bridge students and parents. Afterward, during a WHS lunch period and with dozens of students, teachers, and staff in attendance, Gov. Healey announced the new initiative to the press. Read more about this exciting day.
