Mental Health Services Logo

Baltimore County Public Schools recognizes the importance of student’s mental health, wellness, and safety. Mental health involves emotional, psychological, social, and behavioral wellness. Mental health impacts how we relate to others, manage stress, process information, and make decisions. There are staff in place to support students and refer them for mental health services as needed. These staff work to ensure that the student receive these services.  This includes behavioral health and wraparound services.

The Mental Health Supervisor of Baltimore County:

  1. ensures that a student who is referred for mental health services obtains the necessary services;
  2. maximizes external funding for mental health and wraparound services,
  3. develops plans for delivering behavioral health and wraparound services to students who exhibit specified behaviors of concern.

Mental Health One Pagers for Students, Staff and Parents (Fall 2021)
As we prepare for the start of a new school year, we realize that the social emotional needs of our students, staff, and families require attention and support now more than ever. While we continue to navigate the uncertainty of the pandemic, civil unrest, and more, we wanted to provide one-pager resources specific to our students, caregivers, and staff.
