School Mental Health Services
Each high school and middle school has a Unified Mental Health Team who is responsible for providing a continuum of prevention and intervention supports and services to address the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students and to remove barriers to learning in the school environment.
In addition, all schools have a Pupil Services Student Support Team who meets regularly to discuss student specific issues related to social, emotional, and behavioral functioning and plan interventions and supports to address these issues that adversely affect their school performance and functioning.
Screening for Mental Health
The Suicide Prevention Alliance of Northern Virginia (SPAN) is a regional coalition of the Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax-Falls Church, Loudoun, and Prince William Community Services Boards (CSBs) and other groups in Northern Virginia. As part of this partnership, SPAN provides a free and anonymous online screening tool using the following link: http://screening.mentalhealthscreening.org/northern-virginia. This screening website also assists adults and adolescents in finding appropriate mental health care and support.
