Mental Health Help Kit

Farmington High School counselors have created a Mental Health Help Kit to give students and staff a great resource for information on how to reduce stress, practice mindfulness and start the difficult conversation about mental health.

“As a counseling team, we have noticed an increased number of students suffering from mental illnesses like stress, anxiety or depression,” said FHS counselor Alyssa Belko. “We wanted to give them a resource that they can turn to around the clock for help.”

The counseling team has worked hard to create a supportive, welcoming space for all students to come to for guidance, but they realize students may not know where to turn after school hours or during school breaks. This app provides at-your-fingertips access to support any time it is needed.

The Help Kit automatically downloads to each ISD 192 issued iPad home screen, and provides links to other helpful applications that can be downloaded for free from the app store on any device.
