Whether remote or in person, we are here for your students! We want to provide you and your students resources during this uncertain time in our world. We gathered a list of activities that support mental health. We also will add ongoing announcements with relevant and helpful information for students and families!

The "Shared Resources" tab will house any resources we share with you. Below is our contact information and a request form students can fill out if they would like to talk to a counselor.

Take care,

Your BCK8 Mental Health Team
