Mental Health

  • What is Wellness?

    SCUSD Wellness creates a caring and connected culture to positively impact academic success and build capacity for social-emotional growth. As part of an integrated team, Wellness provides resources, advocacy, and education to address the ever-changing needs of our diverse school communities.

    Through connection and collaboration, Wellness ensures all SCUSD community members have access to resources and support for emotional and academic growth. 


    Summer Mental Health Support

    While we are unable to offer Wellness Check-in Appointments during summer, we continue to provide support for those students and families who may feel additional stress and anxiety. We have partnered with CareSolace, to provide students and families with assistance in finding local mental health-related programs and counseling services. In addition, our Family Resource Center is available during the summer to provide resources.
