Wellness Resources for Students
From your Hart District Wellness Team:
William S. Hart USD recognizes that we’re living through history conducting school virtually, and it's not necessarily easy!
For many children, parents and teachers, uncertainty feels like the only constant as we start off the new school year. Even as we try to positively re-frame our thinking and start this school year virtually, we understand it is an adjustment and that this "new normal" is not necessarily easy. As students are adjusting to new routines and schedules, google classroom assignments and expectations as well as practicing time management skills and logging in for virtual classes, we get it. This can create A LOT of stress!
The Wellness Initiative is here to support you! Whether it be you wanting to identify ways to autonomously help yourself, or you need to talk to our School Social Workers and set up a private tele-support appointment, we can help support you!
The Hart District Wellness website is full of resources on mental health and wellness, stress and anxiety, grief, suicide prevention, self care and even if you just need a mental break and want to explore virtual tours or videos of encouragement.
For students looking for more support and wanting to speak with someone from the District about any stress or anxiety they might be experiencing, the Wellness Warm-Line is available. The Wellness Warm-Line is a non-emergency resource for all William S. Hart School District students seeking emotional support as a result of the "Stay at Home" order and culmination of Distance Learning. The Wellness-Warm-Line's goal is to provide support prior to a mental health crisis. Some concerns callers share are stress, anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationship issues, panic, corona blues or are just having a bad day and need to talk to someone. You may access support from the Wellness Warm-Line during school days (Monday through Friday 8am-3pm). If this is an emergency, please contact 911 immediately.You will receive a return phone-call within the school day. If accessed during after-hours, you may contact the CA Peer-Run Warm-Line- 855-845-7415. If you know someone who needs immediate help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741.
Reach out. We understand that this school year has started differently. We understand that some are struggling and need additional support. We are here for you and we can get through this.
