Mental Health Support and School Based Clinics


Mental Health Support

Minneapolis Public Schools has school-based mental health services for students when school is in session.  We continue to think about how we can support our educational community during this time that schools are closed due to COVID-19. 

Students who receive school based mental health services

If your student receives school based mental health services when school is in session, these services are still available when school is closed. Your health care provider should have already reached out to you or you can call your school social worker to get reconnected. School based clinics in the high schools are still providing their services and can also provide mental health services for students.

Also see the MPS resources on how to support children with grief and loss.
