    School-based Supports - Academic Challenges, Changes During Pandemic, Anxiety/Loss of Focus/Loss of Motivation 

    With so much happening in our world, our community, and our homes we understand that school can be difficult. We want to offer some support in hopes of giving you some tools that can make school just a little bit easier.  

                   FJUHSD has school-based mental health services. These services can link you to a mental health provider that can explore what is affecting your academic performance and provide tools to help overcome those barriers. They can help address issues such as stress, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, or loss of motivation about school. As a school we want to do what we can to support your personal academic goals, and this is one of the resources we have to offer. 

                    If this sounds like something you would desire please connect with your parent(s)/guardian(s) to provide permission for you to connect with these services. If you or they want more information, please click on our Mental Health tab from our district website.

    We would need 2 things from you to proceed. Part one is you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) fill out and sign our Mental Health Consent Form. Secondly, we ask that you (student) and parent(s)/guardian(s) complete our Student Screener. Once you have those two components completed, please reach out to your counselor or administration and we can discuss next steps to starting the process.
