services in my district

My district used to not have very many mental health services, but that is slowly changing. The high school has always had some, but we now have interns and a full time mental health clinician. The guidance counselors also provide some basic counseling, but it's for low-key issues. That is my role too as a school psychologist. I just do counseling. If a student has bigger issues and needs more therapy, then I refer them to a mental health clinician.

We are starting to get mental health services at the elementary level now because before there was NOTHING! I think the district is starting to see that being proactive at the elementary level benefits the children quite a bit.
