Pugh wants psychological services for Baltimore school students to cope with violence

Baltimore City Mayor Catherine Pugh said Friday she wants children encountering Baltimore's surge in violence to have access to psychologists in schools to help them deal with fear and trauma. Pugh — asked to comment on the series of shootings Thursday that left one person dead and eight injured — said she is concerned about therapy and other resources available to the city's 82,000 public school students in the face of the district's $130 million budget shortfall.

An article about the announcement in the Baltimore Sun contained references to the School of Social Work and its Promise Heights initiative.
