SMHS Wellness Program
The Wellness Program at SMHS provides prevention and short term intervention for all students facing social and emotional challenges that impact academic performance, attendance, and behavior at school. In a safe and supportive environment students can meet with a wellness counselor to discuss a variety of complex issues such as stress, trauma, suicide, depression, bullying, grief, self-esteem, family life, drug and alcohol use, relationships and gender identity and LGBTQ+. Students can learn positive, lifelong habits that contribute to their well-being and success. The Wellness Program provides short-term (up to 12 sessions) individual, group and/or drop-in support in a confidential, non-judgmental space staffed with therapists who are dedicated to improving the health, well-being and educational outcomes of all students.
Talk with your student's school counselor as the first step to accessing wellness service or come in during drop in hours.
San Mateo High School will not be hosting the Parent Project this Fall. However, the program will be offered at other schools, such as Mills High School (Millbrae) and Park Elementary School (San Mateo). If you think that any of our families could benefit from this program, please provide them with this information. Download the calendar of classes offered to parents/guardians in Spanish and English.
