Virtual Mental Health Workshops Support Families

Virtual Mental Health Workshops Support Families

Supporting the well-being of students and families during these difficult times of the pandemic and physical school closures continues to be a top priority for the Mountain View School District.


Throughout these past months of distance learning and connecting virtually instead of in-person, the District has worked diligently to provide resources for its entire Mountain View community focused on mental health and well-being. In addition to the District’s school psychologists and school counselors providing students and families with support through meetings, workshops and the Virtual Calming Room, MVSD is partnering with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and hosting monthly virtual mental health workshops. 


The monthly workshops are held the third Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. and are led by licensed counselors and therapists who address topics such as depression and anxiety, grief and loss, suicide prevention and childhood disorders. The workshops are presented in English, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese and provide participants a safe space to express their feelings, engage in discussion and learn self-care tips and coping strategies.  


MVSD also partners with Care Solace, a free online resource with live 24 hours a day-7 days a week assistance to help individuals find local mental health related programs and counseling services.  Care Solace matches vetted counseling agencies in the area with the user’s current medical insurance provider, taking into account all types of private insurance including Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare, as well as those who have no insurance.
