Motivational Coaches of America
Following the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Motivational Coaches of America will place addition counselors at Florida schools to provide in-person behavioral health and emotional support for students and their families.
This expansion will focus primarily on Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties. The service will be free of charge, regardless of a student’s health coverage status.
“We have a moral imperative to ensure the youth in this community, as well as other impacted districts, receive the mental health attention they require and recover from the tragedy that has hit close to home,” said Julio Avael, founder and chief executive officer of MCUSA.
