This is achieved primarily through groups, presentations and collaboration with teachers, parents and scholars. The counseling team also provides community referrals, crisis intervention and individual sessions as needed.

Update: Suicide Prevention Lessons
To proactively address the issue of suicide among adolescents, 7th-9th grade scholars participated in discussions about suicide prevention at school. 
During the lessons scholars were encouraged to reach out to an adult they trust if they have a concern for themselves or a friend. If your scholar brings a concern to you, please take it seriously and reach out for help. There are resources on the Social & Emotional counseling page. Please reach out to Mrs. James for additional resources and support.
  • This lesson is in compliance with California Education Code section 215 Assembly Bill 2246, which mandates that scholars be taught suicide and depression awareness.
  • A link to the lesson slides may be found on the Social & Emotional Learning page.
Please email Mrs. James with any questions.
