Mental Health Support Services

The MCISD has developed a team to address the mental health issues in Monroe County schools and to promote positive mental health.  This team will work directly with schools in the areas of crisis management and professional development.  The Mental Health Team will provide assistance and direction when a crisis takes place at a school, connecting with local mental health agencies so that services can work efficiently to help  families, staff and students.  Additionally, the team will provide ongoing trainings and professional development in areas such as trauma, anxiety,  self care, mental health first aid, psychological readiness, strategies to use in the classroom to help reduce disruptions, mental health curriculum, and suicide prevention.  The Mental Health Team will serve on local committees and help to bridge the gap between home, school, and local agencies in the area of mental health.
