The 2020 Census - Get Counted
Have you completed the 2020 Census for your household?
It is quick and easy - It's not personal - It is basically just a count of how many people live in any given area... This count influences Federal and State funding and planning for all types of programs, services and infrastructure projects for the next 10 Years...
Visit https://my2020census.gov/ to START
It only takes a few minutes... and it is so important for you, your family and community...
Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future, and your representation in government. Specifically, data from the 2020 Census are used to:
Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, and fire departments.
Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.
Determine how many seats your state is allocated in the House of Representatives.

McGehee High School Partners with the Arkansas Rural Health Partnership to Train Students in teen Mental Health First Aid
tMHFA is an in-person training designed for high school students to learn about mental illnesses and addictions to help them identify and respond to friends who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem. With this training, our high school students will be empowered to assist their friends when a mental health problem or crisis, such as suicidal thoughts, is apparent.
The course specifically teaches the important step of involving a responsible and trusted adult. As such, we are also training thirty of our school staff in Mental Health First Aid for Adults Working with Young People.
The National Council for Behavioral Health and Born This Way Foundation are piloting the course in over 35 high schools across the country, including MHS. After the pilot program is complete, the training course will be available to the public.
Thank you for your continued support of MHS and this community. We are excited to support a path toward greater awareness about mental health and increased capacity to respond to students with mental health problems.
