  • Jefferson Union High School District Summer 2020 Wellness Counselor Availability 

    We hope you are doing the best you can to stay safe and healthy during these incredibly challenging times. We want to acknowledge the huge amount of grief, fear and anxiety many people are currently experiencing due to the COVID19 pandemic. Additionally, we know that we cannot talk about wellness without acknowledging the trauma and suffering that many people in our communities are facing as a result of the ongoing violence towards communities of color and black communities in particular. There is no doubt that the constant threat of this pandemic, and the layers of systemic oppression create huge barriers that impact not only a person’s ability to engage in learning but also their mental health and wellness. As a wellness team, our goal is to support students, families, and staff in whatever ways we can during this challenging time and to challenge racist systems and structures that are negatively impacting wellness and mental health for students, staff and families in our communities. 

    Our role during summer school and summer is to provide short term support to students and families during this time. This includes crisis support, connecting students to resources, and checking in on students and families. 

    It is important for students and their families to understand that while the District takes student confidentiality very seriously, we can not guarantee 100% confidentiality in our use of telehealth counseling meetings as the internet and telephone are susceptible to outside interference. 

    If this is a medical or mental health emergency, please do not send an email but  contact the following resources immediately: 

    • 911 or visit your nearest hospital emergency room if you can get there safely 
    • Crisis Text Line: text "home" to 741-741
    • National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
    • StarVista Crisis Hotline: 650-579-0350
    • Trevor Project (for LGBTQ youth): 1-866-488-7386 or text START to 67867

    How to make an appointment: 

    • During summer school wellness counselors will be available between the hours of 10:30-2:30, Monday- Thursday.
    • Wellness Counselors will also be available after summer school until August 7th. Please contact the Wellness Counselor directly for their out-of-summer school hours. 
    • If an urgent issue comes up outside of those hours, please contact one of the crisis resources below, and email the Wellness Counselor for that week so we can follow up to check in with you.
