Who are school-based mental health and prevention providers?

School-based mental health providers collaborate with district staff while bringing unique training and expertise to address the mental health needs of preK-12 students. They provide school-based therapy to students who are referred to the school-based mental health team. On staff, we have two mental health specialists, a licensed art therapist, and a licensed clinical counselor, available for our students.

Our I³: Inspired, Individualized, Inclusive program (also known as Strategic Prevention Framework) focuses on substance use prevention. Our goal is to educate our students, families, and community to reduce the misuse of substances and prevent further misuse. We also focus on mental health prevention and education. Our team consists of a Project Director, Data Analyst, and Prevention Specialist.

If you know a student who is in need of mental health or prevention services, please fill out the form linked below:
