MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES: 3/4/2022
Social Workers, School Psychologists, School Counselors and our community mental health partners provide supportive services to students who need assistance for any reason, from overcoming academic challenges to handling life-altering events. There is an access guide that shares information about the services offered such as:

  • providing therapeutic intervention to help students cope with stress and trauma;
  • leading small-group sessions to support students with relationship building;
  • providing substance abuse prevention and intervention;
  • providing strategies and skills to help students improve their focus and concentration;
  • linking students to practical resources to help families gain access to food, clothing, and transportation;
  • completing comprehensive assessments to help school teams make data-informed decisions

To help you get the necessary support, the DCPS School Mental Health Team has developed a universal referral process. This process allows you to access all mental health and counseling supports in your school by completing one form. There is a form for adults who are referring students for services and a different form for students who are requesting services for themselves. Fill out the appropriate form and share it with your School Behavior Health Coordinator, who is available to meet with you to discuss your concerns and provide information on consent and other pre-service information.

Los trabajadores sociales, psicólogos escolares, consejeros escolares y nuestros socios de salud mental de la comunidad prestan servicios de apoyo a aquellos estudiantes que necesitan ayuda por cualquier motivo, desde la superación de retos académicos hasta el manejo de acontecimientos que alteran la vida. Hay una guía de acceso que brinda información sobre los servicios que se ofrecen, como por ejemplo:

Para ayudarle a obtener el apoyo necesario, el Equipo de Salud Mental de las Escuelas Públicas del Distrito de Columbia (DCPS, por sus siglas en inglés) ha desarrollado un proceso de remisión universal. Este proceso le permite acceder a todos los servicios de salud mental y asesoramiento de su centro escolar con sólo completar un formulario. Hay dos formularios, uno para los adultos que remiten a los estudiantes a los servicios y otro para los estudiantes que solicitan servicios para sí mismos. Complete el formulario según corresponda y compártalo con el Coordinador de Salud Conductual de su escuela, quien está en la mejor disposición de reunirse con usted para hablar de sus preocupaciones y ofrecerle información sobre el consentimiento y otras informaciones previo al servicio.

SOCIAL MEDIA HUB

At CHEC, there is power in student voice, and it isn't a voice that teachers can give. We don't give voices here. We make space for students interested in learning how to fight for their lives, our lives, and their nation. From discussion about the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 in communities of color, to immigration reform, housing descrimination, mass incarceration, police brutality our students are ready, willing and able to engage in courageous conversations.
