Students, families, and staff members often experience a variety of complex situations that have an impact on their physical and mental health. These situations present unique challenges and can often be difficult to navigate. Leaving these challenges and situations unaddressed can hinder students in a number of ways, including their ability to thrive both in school and out of school.

There are several programs available to students while in school, as well as a variety of community resources that can be accessed by students, families, and staff at any time.
