Mission Statement

School Mental Health professionals promote the mental health, well-being and academic achievement of all Los Angeles Unified School District students.


School Mental Health professionals support positive student connections with peers, family, school and community to aid in student development. They also facilitate the ability to successfully deal with problems, crises, or traumatic experiences. School Mental Health professionals foster resiliency – the ability to bounce back from challenges with a stronger sense of self-confidence and coping capacity – by promoting healthy relationships, self-reflection, and problem-solving skills to optimize school success.
