UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Michigan Department of Education will soon be able to improve school safety by giving teachers a way to identify early signs of mental illness and improve access to mental health services for students.  U.S. Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow announced on Thursday that the MDE will receive a federal grant of more than two-million dollars through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Safe Schools/Healthy Students program.  The funding will be used to develop and implement evidence-base programs and strategies to reduce violence in schools, increase access to behavioral health services and increase support for early childhood development and substance abuse programs.
