South San ISD in partnership with six community agencies is offering mental wellness services for enrolled students and their families. This collaboration was conceived from the advocacy efforts of a group of South San High School students who saw the barriers students faced in accessing mental health services.
Services are offered at no cost to elementary, middle and high school students and their families. Through the South San Mobile Mental Wellness partnership, services are provided at the student’s campus or the South San Care Zone; located in the annex building of Athens Elementary. Please email the district at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to use any of the services. Please click on the links at the bottom of the page for more information about each program.
