  • Submitting School Mental Health Clinic & Wellness Center Referrals for Non-Emergency Mental Health Services

    School Mental Health Clinics and Wellness Centers provide individual and family therapy for LAUSD students of all ages. At this time all services are provided remotely by telephone or videoconferencing.

    Please note: We are not a crisis response service center. If you or your child needs immediate support (is an immediate threat to the safety of themselves or others) please contact 911 for assistance. You can also contact the LA County Department of Mental Health 24hr hotline at 800-854-7771. 

    To submit a referral for services, please complete the referral form as completely and accurately as possible.

         1. Ensure all student, family, and referring party contact information added the form is up to date and accurate, including cell phone and email addresses for the parent(s) or adult student.

         2. SMH Clinic & Wellness Center staff can provide assistance to families, if needed, to access behavioral/mental health services through their private (employer or family paid) insurance plans.

         3. On the cover page, please indicate the family's preferred clinic site to be seen at after schools and clinics re-open.  Please submit the referral form via the email address associated with their selected site.

         4. Once the referral has been received, clinic staff will reply to inform you that it has been received and is being processed. Clinic staff will contact the family within 24 working hours of receiving the referral.
