Accessing community behavioral health care that is a "good fit" for your student/family is dependent on a number of factors including, but not limited to, types of insurance accepted by the provider, availability, location, cultural fit and language. If at any point you would like support navigating the community system, district Mental Health Care Coordinators are available to help. For more information, see the Mental Health Care Coordination tab on the left.
