In response to the isolation caused by the pandemic, the New Milford Youth Agency will be offering counseling services for middle and high schoolers this summer, ahead of the new school year, to help young people.  The organization will then work with the schools to provide continued service in partnership with the district's clinics.  The Board of Education is planning for two administrative rooms and one exam room at each school become school-based health centers focused on mental health.  The Youth Agency is also offering esteem-building programs for New Milford youth to help build confidence.  New Milford schools will use federal funds to create physical and mental health clinics.  Connecticut Institute For Communities would also help cover some of the costs.  The Park & Rec Department is also looking to provide team-building exercises and programs for younger kids that allow positive expression and the ability to get out nervous energy after being in a hybrid model of learning for most of the year.
