Crisis Services

Santa Clara Unified School District is committed to the health and well-being of all students. The district acknowledges that students learn best when their social and emotional health is tended to. With this in mind, SCUSD offers a number of programs and services that promote student well-being and support suicide prevention. These programs range from on site wellness centers, to free on site counseling, to crisis support.

Each school site has a professional Wellness team that works collaboratively with families, students and staff to ensure that emotional barriers to student learning are identified and addressed. If your student is experiencing distress or needs assistance with issues of well-being, please contact your child's counselor or a site administrator. 

Additionally, SCUSD's Board Policy (BP) and Administrative Regulation (AR) on Suicide Prevention Resources can be found here: BP 5141.52 / AR 5141.52
