Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Student Services team at your child’s school. They are there to support you and your child with any mental health questions or concerns.

Resources provided to us by the Florida Department of Education that you can use when you talk to your child about warning signs to look out for in their peers, and help them feel comfortable talking about their thoughts and feelings.

The health and well-being of our students is a top priority.
