Brenau University Pres. on expanding mental health services and resources in Georgia

In efforts to address the gap, In April of 2022, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed The Mental Health Parity Act, House Bill 1013 into law. The measure enforces a federal law that requires “parity” in health coverage.

Darby School of Psychology and Adolescent Counseling, partnering with the Gainesville Police Department and the opening of two Brenau Center for Counseling and Psychological Services clinics.
