Home-SLHS Mental Health

Thanks for checking out the mental health webpage!!  I endeavor to provide resources and supportive information here for students, families and staff regarding healthy social and emotional development, relationships, coping, and community resources. 

WHAT DOES A SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKER DO?  Overall, school social workers (also called school mental health providers) help students, parents and staff identify needs that are interfering wtih learning and work with those students to get the services they need.  I work with students accessing general education, problem-solving, and receiving specialized instruction to resolve social, emotional, and behavioral concerns.  School social workers use assessment and consultation with school staff and community providers, I develop and implement behavior management plans, and provide direct and indirect mental health services.  I work closely with the counselors, administration, and special education departments to help bridge school, home, and community to support students' success!
