Mental Health Supports

Protecting the health and well-being of all students is very important at Mitchell Senior. All students will learn about recognizing and responding to warning signs of suicide in friends, using coping skills, using support systems, and seeking help for themselves and friends.  If you or a friend are showing signs of depression and suicide risk, please remember to ACT:


Acknowledge-that you are seeing signs of depression or suicide in yourself or a friend and that it is serious

Care- Let your friend know how much you care about them and that you are concerned that they need help

Tell- a trusted adult that you are worried about yourself or a friend


All students will be expected to help create a school culture of respect and support in which students feel comfortable seeking help for themselves or friends. Students are encouraged to tell any staff member if they, or a friend, are feeling suicidal or in need of help. You can also get help at:
