My Students

Our students are incredible! They are resilient and show tremendous "Si Se Puede (Yes you/we can)" every day. Some of our students need more support to have a successful school experience; obstacles to learning include educational disabilities, unmet social/emotional needs, and adverse childhood experiences.

Of students who receive mental health services, 70-80% receive them in schools.

School psychologists are well-positioned to provide mental and behavioral health services to students. As a full-time school psychologist in one school, I collaborate with my team to support the whole child throughout the school day.

My Project

Unaddressed mental health needs increase risk for suspension, expulsion, dropout, and entering the juvenile justice system.

School psychologists are uniquely qualified providers and transcend many barriers to mental health support for students and families.

The fact is, school is the #1 access point for students to get mental health support that can bolster their social/emotional skills and help ensure a bright future. Students who need services can receive them during the school day, during non-core instructional periods. The services provided by school psychologists are completely free to families, and school psychologists have the unique position of collaborating with school teams and families to ensure children's success.

These play and art therapy tools will allow me to meet children where they're at and provide therapy in a mode that is most engaging and effective for them. Thank you for considering giving to my project!
