There are many issues that face our youth today, and one of our goals as a counseling center is to provide families with community resources to meet your student’s specific mental health and emotional needs. Though school counselors are available to help students during the school day, our goal is also to empower families to access more comprehensive services.
In addition to many community resources, we have linked some online assistance through articles and links. We hope these resources will help you and your family with your specific needs.

School District 3 has adopted the Signs of Suicide Program or SOS which will be presented to all students at Mesa Ridge High School. This curriculum deals with the difficult topic of suicide but also provides students with the needed information and steps on how to access help. The SOS program presentations will be completed by Spring Break.
