Counseling and Mental Health

Students who were receiving services and support before school student dismissals have the opportunity to continue to receive services. Parents/guardians of these students will be contacted by their counselor.

To request mental health services for your student, click here to fill out this referral form, and we will try to connect you with a provider. 

The district works with local non-profits to support mental health. We partner with the Counseling and Support Services for Youth (CASSY), Child Mind Institute (CMI), and StarVista. If families need other resources, we work with Children’s Health Council (CHC).
If you have questions about Counseling and Mental Health, please contact Cynthia Chin, 650-329-2800 ext. 60168, Email

Ways for adults & children to cope with stress

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling. Connect with friends and family members via phone or video chat.
