Mental Health

Mental Health 

Everyone’s mental health well being will vary/swing throughout our lifetime. At times we may all feel stressed, anxious, insecure, bullied, heartbroken and grieved – it’s part of life. While these common mental health challenges may not always be severe enough for us to seek help from a mental health professional sometimes they are. 

Just as it is important to pay attention to our physical health – eating well, getting regular exercise and seeing a doctor when something is not quite right – we need to do the same for our mental health. 

To address these needs, Durham Public Schools has partnered with local mental health agencies to make it easier for families and students to access mental health services when they need them.
