Mental Health Resources

FUHSD is committed to both excellence and equity. Maintaining our excellence requires that we commit to ensuring high levels of learning for all students: learning that is not limited to the knowledge and skills measured on state and national assessments. We work hard to support today’s students to be the thinkers, leaders and productive citizens of tomorrow, and this includes supporting students mental health and social and emotional wellbeing. FUHSD provides many of these supports through staff that includes guidance counselors, school psychologists, student advocates (licensed marriage and family therapists) and administrators.

However, we know that student social and emotional health cannot be addressed by schools alone. Thus, we provide students and their families with services and access to community programs that will optimize the health, wellness and safety of our students for them to be successful in the years to come. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources for ensuring the health and wellbeing of your student(s) and family.
