Social & Emotional Health
Mental health is a critical part of students' overall health and wellbeing. Our schools are places where academic, social, emotional, behavioral learning and mental health intersect. Broken Arrow teachers, counselors and principals work in partnership with embedded therapists and school-based social workers to address the needs of the whole child.
Some specific ways in which we connect students and their families with resources include:
- School counselors who serve as educators, collaborators and consultants in meeting students’ needs and achievement outcomes.
- School-based social workers who assist in removing barriers to school success by connecting students and their families to helpful community resources.
- Embedded-therapists in each of our schools who provide individualized therapeutic support to students during the school day.
- Partnership with the Mental Health Association of Oklahoma to offer parents the option of consenting to a mental health check-up for their student.
Families of students enrolled in Broken Arrow who are seeking more information about these resources and services can contact their school principal or counselor. The COPES Crisis Services hotline at 918-744-4800 is available to all adults and children in the Tulsa area 24/7.
