Mental Health Resources

Some students may experience moments of stress, sadness, and/or a general sense of feeling overwhelmed.  Our counseling department and our mental health partner, Child Focus is available to support our students and families in all of our buildings. They have provided some resources below should your child, or someone they know, experience a crisis.  As always, students and parents can report any safety concerns by using our online system through  Public School Works so that an administrator is notified immediately. 
For a mental health crisis or emergency, patients and families are encouraged to contact their current mental health provider first. This allows the mental health provider, who knows your child best, to provide support and direction.
If your child does not have a mental health provider, and they are experiencing a non-life threatening mental health crisis, you are encouraged to contact the Psychiatric Intake Response Center (PIRC) at CCHMC 513.636.4124. The PIRC staff will help you to decide the most effective level of intervention for your child’s mental health crisis – which may include an urgent psychiatric assessment in the PIRC Bridge Clinic.
