BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – The Butte County Office of Education was awarded $1 million for a grant known as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Grant.

The grant aims to increase access to needed substance abuse services, knowledge of mental health, and secondary trauma in Concow and on the Paradise ridge, Butte County Superintendent, Mary Sakuma, announced Thursday.

Butte County Office of Education applied for the grant to continue to support students, schools, and families while they recover from the Camp Fire. The grant is targeted specifically for areas impacted by disasters.

“The BCOE School Ties Program has been providing prevention services to students in Butte County, but those services have been mostly limited to preventing vaping and tobacco use,” said Meagan Meloy, Director, School Ties & Prevention Services. “We are very grateful to be able to meet this expanded need, which is one we have seen growing on our campuses since the Camp Fire.”

A fundamental and important part of the grant is assistance from local partnerships. Those include Youth For Change, Mindful Littles, Inner Explorer, and the schools and district offices on Paradise ridge and Concow, Sakuma said in a press release.

Meagan Meloy will administer the grant along with Matthew Reddam, School and Community Wellness Advisor.
