Health Resources

We know how stressful life can be for anyone, particularly a high school student. If you or someone you know ever feel stressed out, depressed, or just need to talk, please seek out help from an adult. You don't have to go through this alone. All of the teachers, Mrs. Vega, Mrs. Fender, and Ms. Benitez are here to support you - we will make time to hear you out and/or help you find the appropriate resources to feel better. Below are some additional outside resources you can access if you feel you need additional help.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, are in danger, or are feeling suicidal, call 911 immediately.
