    The LRSD Mental Health department directs parents to comprehensive child and adolescent mental health services.

    Our programs are child and family centered, culturally sensitive, and strengths-based.  Services are offered at schools and in the community to ensure greatest access.

    LRSDMH focuses on prevention, early identification of mental health issues, and interventions which promote social-emotional functioning, raise achievement, increase attendance and improve behavior.  Assessment, treatment and case management are available for students in all grade levels.
