Sally Stevens, Psychiatric Social Worker, School Mental Health

School Mental Health professionals support positive student connections with peers, family, school and community, by facilitating student development and the ability to successfully deal with problems, crises, or traumatic experiences. Furthermore, 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.
