LPS provides a range of resources and interventions to support student mental health. Our School Counselors, School Psychologists and School Social Workers focus on supporting students to have healthy hearts and minds and overcome barriers to school success. The district also has a team of specialists that support in specific areas such as School Engagement / Truancy, Restorative Practices, Behavior Consultation, Homelessness, and Mental Health Resources in the community.

SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
The Center for Academic and Social Emotional Learning outlines five key SEL competencies including Self-Management, Self-Awareness, Responsible Decision Making, Relationship Skills, and Social Awareness. LPS is currently working to align its curriculum in this area with the Colorado Comprehensive Health and Physical Education standards. These standards focus on personal decision-making around emotional and social well-being, positive communication, healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco, drug, and alcohol abuse prevention and violence prevention. The standards underscore important skills for navigating today’s society with its complex and often confusing messages around health, beauty, and happiness.
On December 10, 2018, LPS hosted a special conversation to discuss mental health, safety and security in the district.
