    The Florida Department of Education requires schools to provide Mental Health instruction for students in grades 6-12. 

    Beginning Thursday, October 21, students will be asked to participate and complete online assignments that will cover the required Mental Health Awareness Curriculum.  Topics include signs and symptoms of mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, healthy coping techniques, and ways to practice self-care, including nutrition and simply how to ask for help.  While these topics are intended to increase mental health awareness, they are also sensitive in nature. We will have trusted adults present while students complete these assignments.

    If a student would like to speak with a counselor, please contact your grade-level school counselor or use the web link in the parent or student portal to initiate this request. Parents, if you have immediate concerns about your student’s mental well-being and safety, please use local resources such as the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, Crisis Text Line, or Mobile Response Team. The numbers to these agencies can be found under Parent and Guardian Resources on the Escambia County School District’s Mental Health Services website. Thank you for your continued support and for assisting us in this effort to prioritize mental wellness and safety.
