LAUSD School Mental Health (SMH) professionals promote the mental health, well-being, and academic achievement of all LAUSD students.
SMH professionals support positive student connections with peers, family, school, and community by facilitating student development and the ability to successfully deal with problems, crises, or traumatic experiences. Furthermore, SMH professionals foster resiliency - the ability to bounce back from challenges with a stronger sense of self-confidence and coping capacity - by promoting healthy relationships, self-reflection, and problem-solving skills to optimize school success.
