Students' emotional and social well-being are part of their overall mental health state. A student's mental health impacts their ability to cope with different types of stress, interact with others, and progress developmentally. We, in Whitefish Bay, want to ensure collaboration with parents and community providers that students with mental health challenges are identified and assisted, without being stigmatized.
We welcome suggestions and feedback and we continue to enhance our supports for students and their families.
