Mental Health Facts and Resources


Did you know that 20% of youth ages 13-18 live with a mental health condition? Mental health is a prevalent issue among teens and we need to help and support each other.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness put out a great infographic that really highlights how common and serious mental health issues are among children and teens.

If you or your child is struggling with excessive stress or anxiety, then please click here for some useful information and seek help.

If you want to let the counseling team know about specific student or friend you are worried about you can tell your counselor or teacher directly or complete an 
iCare Form and drop it off in the blue box behind the student services building during regular school hours. If it is an immediate emergency you should call 911 and tell an adult.
