Mental Health Resources

We believe it is important to address any need that your child might have that affects success both in and out of school. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Many adolescents experience issues that may require assistance beyond what you as a parent or the school guidance team can provide. Working together, families have been very successful at finding help in the resources listed below to provide your child with support and encouragement in school and in life.

Substance Abuse Resources

We understand that this is a time of experimentation, peer pressure and exploring different paths in life for many of our teenagers. You may be experiencing some struggles related to substance abuse in your family or friends. The information and resources you will find on this page are meant to provide you with knowledge and support that may be of assistance to you and your family. Three Rivers is not directly associated with these organizations and they are offered only as suggestions for support. If you feel your child may be experiencing difficulties involving substance abuse, please feel free to contact your child’s counselor or the school nurse. This is a completely confidential process.
