Mental health awareness continues to be top of mind for the Highland Local School District. We currently offer mental health liaison services to all K-12 students, parents and staff at no cost, across all five Highland buildings. Students, parents or staff may request support directly or on behalf of an individual who may be struggling with identified or suspected mental health needs. Services are voluntary and do require consent in most cases. Services are available in-person or via live video conferencing and include individual sessions for purposes of screening, guidance, resources, intervention, support, crisis intervention, collaboration with outside professionals, coordination of services, linkage and/or referrals.
