  Section 1. Legislative intent and findings. The legislature finds that

joint  effort  to combat the heroin and opioid crises in New York state,

  The  legislature intends to build on the initial aggressive efforts of
the executive and legislative by recognizing the significant role mental
and behavioral health professionals  play  in  identifying  the  warning
signs of heroin and opioid addiction in our children and the maladaptive
behaviors  that  lead  to  early  drug  use  and  ultimately  abuse  and
addiction. The legislature recognizes  that  certified  school  psychol-

factors, coupled with adverse childhood experiences which constitute the
drug abuse  process.  However,  these  highly  trained  specialists  are

legislature finds that the state's mission to  address  the  heroin  and
