We value the mental health of all of our students, families, and school community. This website will provide resources for mental health and support for our students and families during stressful times. You will find resources on a variety of mental health topics on our site and learn how to connect and access mental health support and services from our School Social Worker and District Mental Health Specialists. Mental Health Support Staff provide services that emphasize counseling of children; consultation with teachers, family members, and other significant adults; and coordination of a variety of activities and functions related to the mental health, academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of students. Services provided can be support for anything related to Mental Health but are often related to Behavioral / Mood Changes, Anger Management, Anxiety / Stress, Family and Peer Relationships, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Motivation or Concentration, Self Esteem or Body Image Concerns and Adjustment / Transition Concerns.
