Personal/Social Resources

Mental wellness is very important for student success at school. The Shawnee Mission School District provides a variety of resources to support mental wellness. Parents are encouraged to monitor their student’s mental health and to reach out if help is needed. Each school’s counselor  and social worker can provide further resources for students and partner with parents to provide school-day supports for their student.
