Mental Health Support
Mental health and well being is crucial to being a productive learner, nurturer and educator! Developing skills to care for others as well as yourself is important and often needs assistance. If you are concerned about someone's social emotional well-being, please complete the form below. If you are connected to a school site that has a system of referral, you may use that system as well.
Requests are confidential and are forwarded by email to the administrative team in the Student Support Services and Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). The team will respond to the referral appropriately to follow up. Only those individuals with a need to know will be informed of the referral. All referrals will be responded to as soon as possible.
If there is a psychological or physical emergency, please call 911 immediately.
