Mental Health

Mental health is a necessary component for the promotion of students’ developmental, social, and academic well-being.  Mental health does not necessarily mean the absence of some form of mental illness, but rather having the means and necessary skills to promote the ability to cope with challenges in life. (National Association of School Psychologist, 2017). For this reason the following resources are available to provide guidance on positive promotion of students’ overall school success.


School Mental Health and Behavior Listserv

The School Mental Health and Behavior Listserv is a great way to receive information through periodic emails on statewide training(s), job opportunities, and mental health and/or behavior related events. If you would like to sign up for the listserv, please send your request to Londi Howard, School Psychology Intern:  Email Londi Howard

CRISIS LINE: 1-844-493-TALK (8255) is a 24/7/365 support line for anyone affected by a mental health, substance use or emotional crisis. All calls are connected to a mental health professional, who will provide immediate support and connections to further resources.

WALK-IN CRISIS SERVICES/ STABILIZATION UNITS: Our walk-in crisis services are open 24/7, and offer confidential, in-person crisis support, information and referrals to anyone in need. If you need in-person assistance, or are helping others with a crisis, you can always visit a walk-in crisis services location near you. Some locations provide crisis beds for 1-5 days, for either voluntary or involuntary treatment. View the map to find the locations nearest you.
