Counseling, Psych., Social Services

Counseling, psychological, and social needs in the SUHSD are supported by a wide variety of services and programs. Each school site provides support through a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) approach. Issues addressed include: stress, anxiety/depression, suicide prevention, addiction, and bullying, among many others. Of the 10 Core Components, this one which includes mental health is one of the top priorities for the SUHSD. School Mental Health Support Specialists have been meeting on a monthly basis since 2011, collaborating and coordinating services across the district to best respond to student needs.
