Mental Health Providers and Other Resources
The following list of local mental health providers may be helpful to families seeking services. The listing does not constitute an endorsement, nor does
the school or district claim any liability for services provided. We encourage parents to select services that best fit the family or child’s individual needs.
The following questions may be considered:
1. What is our biggest concern? What skills does the counselor need to have to help us?
2. What counselor gender, age, and style fits my family?
3. Who accepts my family insurance? What will the service cost?
4. Where is the best location? Close to home for convenience or at some distance for more privacy?
