The Del Norte County Unified School District proudly supports the implementation of the school-based health alliance which strives to benefit students by working to improve their overall well-being. By offering an integrative approach that includes mental health services and, eventually, health services, we fully support our students by meeting their needs right on campus.
We are working to implement three Wellness Centers that are located at Crescent Elk Middle School, Del Norte High School, and Sunset High School. We will also offer a fully staffed mobile mental health services van that will serve more geographically isolated schools.
Mental health services have become essential for our youth and their families. Through these services, our students can address mental health needs promptly in the familiar setting of the school. We offer a range of resources to support students and families in facing challenges through prevention, early-intervention, and education.
WELLNESS CENTERS COMING SOON!
Our Wellness Centers at Crescent Elk Middle School, Del Norte High School, and Sunset High School will offer in-person and telehealth appointments for our students who are seeking more intensive mental health support.
Students will be able to self-refer for individual sessions and attend group sessions when offered. Teachers and counselors will have the ability to refer students to the Wellness Centers as well.
