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, mental health is one of the top priorities for the SUHSD. School mental health leads have been meeting on monthly basis since in 2011, with the goal of coordinating and collaborating across the district.
