School Mental Health Services
Each school has a Pupil Services Student Support Team consisting of a School Counselor, School Social Worker, School Psychologist, Student Assistance Specialist, Health Clinic Specialist, Special Education Supervisor, School Nurse/health Clinic Specialist, Attendance Officer, and Behavioral Specialist. The team is responsible for coordinating and providing a continuum of school-based prevention and intervention supports and services to address the social, emotional, and behavioral needs in students whose difficulties affect their school 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.
