The LRSD Mental Health department directs parents to comprehensive child and adolescent mental health services.

Our programs are child and family centered, culturally sensitive, and strengths-based.  Services are offered at schools and in the community to ensure greatest access.

LRSDMH focuses on prevention, early identification of mental health issues, and interventions which promote social-emotional functioning, raise achievement, increase attendance and improve behavior.  Assessment, treatment and case management are available for students in all grade levels.

 

Goals & Objectives

The major components of LRSDMH include early screening, accessibility of mental health service, coordination with community mental health providers, and parental involvement.

  3. Increase school and community mental health prevention and treatment services.

  4. Address early childhood psychosocial and emotional development.
