Program Overview

Overview of the Mental Health Program!

Summer Wellness Support: June 10-July 12, 2024

As we head into the summer break, disconnection from routines may present challenges for our students. 

SMUHSD is committed to supporting equitable access to mental health care for our students and families.

Limited Wellness support will be available this summer from June 10- July 12, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

For non-urgent situations, students can complete the Schedule Once Link for an appointment with a Wellness Counselor. For more immediate support and additional resources please visit the Crisis Resources listed below.

The San Mateo Union High School District’s School Based Mental Health and Wellness Program provides prevention and short term intervention services for all students facing social and emotional challenges that impact academic performance, attendance, and behavior at school. 

In a safe and supportive environment students can meet with Wellness Counselors to discuss a variety of complex issues such as stress, trauma, suicide, depression, bullying, grief, self esteem, family life, drug and alcohol use, relationships, gender identity and LGBTQ+.

Students can learn positive, lifelong habits that contribute to their well-being and success.

The Mental Health and Wellness Program provides short-term individual, group and drop-in support in a confidential, non-judgmental space staffed with Wellness Counselors who are dedicated to improving the health, well-being and educational outcomes of all students.
