School Social Workers can help assess educational impact and the need for school-based services and/or provide counseling resources in the community. Depending on your child's circumstances, here are some considerations and how best to proceed in getting them support, in or outside of the building.
- Speak to your child's adviser, who will consult with the Social Work Department or contact the social work department directly.
- If there is an immediate emergency (you are concerned about your child and they are at risk of hurting themself, others, or they are being harmed in any way) outside of school hours, please contact their physician/therapist, dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. There are many community resources available to provide support to you. If this is an emergency (you are concerned about your child and they are at risk of hurting themself, others, or they are being harmed in any way) during school hours, please direct your child to go to the Social Work department.
- Non-Emergency: If your child has an assigned social worker and would like to schedule an appointment, please have them email their social worker, and they will get back to you within 24 hours during regular school days.
If a student does not have an assigned social worker and they need to speak to someone, they can schedule an appointment for an assessment. A link to schedule an appointment through Bookings will be provided on the adviser's canvas page.
