Mental Health Support
Promoting and supporting mental health is an important component to achieving success personally and academically. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness in the United States, and half of all chronic mental illness begins by the age of 14. Working together, we can support the mental health needs of students. Lakeville Area Public Schools is committed to meeting student needs through ongoing staff development, school-based counseling and support, and consultation and care coordination with community-based professionals when requested.
Co-located Therapy Services
Lakeville Area Public Schools offers co-located mental health services on site throughout our district with partner mental health clinics. Therapists are provided space within school buildings, and provide services similar to services provided within the clinic setting.
To inquire about mental health services or supports for your child, please contact your child’s Student Support Specialist (secondary) or School Counselor (elementary). For general information, or to get connected with student support services in a specific building, you may also contact Lisa Holien, Student Services Coordinator at 952-232-3770 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you desire Student Support Services staff to collaborate with community based professionals working with your child, please complete the Release of Information below and return it to school staff or your medical provider.
