*Call 911 if you or the person you are helping is in immediate danger.*

According to mentalhealth.gov: Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

We care about your mental health, the mental health of our staff, and our students. That's why we have created this page to provide resources for anyone looking for mental health help or information.

Remember, students and families can always reach out to school social workers or counselors for further information and resources.



Are you in crisis? Call or text 988.

The 988 Lifeline offers free and confidential support for anyone in crisis. That includes people who need support for a suicidal, mental health, and/or substance use crisis or who are in emotional distress.
