Available student assistance is top of mind for Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Houston Independent School District is joining organizations across the country in raising awareness about the importance of mental health by highlighting available resources and support for students and staff.

Throughout the month, HISD will be sharing various tips and resources focused on stress management, emotional resilience, and self-care practices. Additionally, HISD’s dedicated counseling services, mental health professionals, and community partnerships are available to support and guide students.

The best way to seek assistance for students is by contacting your campus counseling office or completing the Student Assistance Form (SAF).

Through a new partnership with Hazel Health, HISD students can also connect with licensed medical providers via telehealth to receive mental and physical health services.

HISD Employees can utilize the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to leverage available mental health resources.
