Little Rock School District Mental Health Department

  • Children's Mental Health Matters!

    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, homes, and in the community to ensure greatest access.

    LRSD Mental Health 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.

    The major components of LRSD Mental Health Services include early screening, accessibility of mental health services, coordination with community mental health providers, and parental involvement.
