As our community prepares for the reopening of our school campuses, we expect that these changes will bring both relief and hope, as well as new challenges as we adjust to a different school experience.
Whatever your or your family’s needs are, we want you to know that you are not alone and that support is available at school and in our community. If you, or someone you know, needs help you can find support below:
1. COST Referral System
We have a number of partnering agencies that provide wellness and mental health counselors, including professionals from:
- Project Eden
- East Bay Agency for Children (EBAC)
- Wellness Together
- Native American Center for Health (NACH)
- Korean Community Center of the East Bay (KCEEB)
In order to get connected to services, students can be referred by staff and teachers. However, students can also self-advocate and self-refer their needs for services by filling out this form.
Additionally, the self-referral form is posted every week in the Student Pirate Post, which publishes every Sunday, along with additional updates and information about health and wellness services.
2. Barbara Lee Center (BLC)
Native American Center for Health continues to operate from the BLC, even during distance learning. They provide many services beyond mental wellness:
