Congratulations to ACCE students and staff for being awarded the Washtenaw County Mental Health Public Safety Preservation Millage, and Washtenaw Intermediate School District mini-grant in the amount of $5,000 in February of 2022! This grant allowed us to build a weight room at ACCE, hold our very first Pride Prom in May and host two community Mental Health Day events, where we talked about strategies to take care of our mental health, symptoms of mental health issues and promoted help-seeking, reducing stigma in our community.
