Tallahassee, Fla – Today, First Lady Casey DeSantis issued the following statement applauding the State Board of Education for officially implementing an initiative regarding substance abuse and mental health education for students in grades K-12.

“Nothing is more important to parents than the safety and well-being of their children, which is why this accountability initiative is vitally important,” said First Lady Casey DeSantis. “Ensuring Florida students understand the implications and ramifications of drug abuse will not only save lives but also help foster a healthy and productive learning environment.
