Behavioral Health

We've created a PSESD School Behavioral Health Workbook to serve as a practical guide for detailing your plans and supporting the implementation of addressing the needs of students, family, and staff well-being. Our goal is to attend first to the mental health, emotional state, and well-being of members of the school community and to do so leading with race equity. This attention will not only support our youth in the here and now but for years to come. All materials have been vetted as evidence-based practices and consolidated for your use. The workbook was developed to align with the ESSER student well-being recovery plans. For more information on behavioral health resources, please contact Kim Beeson.

PSESD is committed to supporting schools during this uncertain time. We are currently evaluating opportunities and developing plans to support schools in providing child care, meals, and learning resources. Continue to check this website and social media outlets for updates on our plans, and refer to official local entities for health-related information.
