KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTNH) – The Killingly Board of Education approved an agreement on Thursday that will bring a mental health clinic to the town’s high school, according to officials.

Last year, the Killingly Board of Education turned down the opportunity to implement a mental health clinic in the town’s high school, which caused turmoil for students and parents who felt it was necessary.
