The Cherry Creek School District has a comprehensive system of mental health supports across our schools to help students grow and thrive along their educational journey.
School psychologists and social workers in our schools embrace preventative and early intervention models designed to meet the mental health, social-emotional and behavioral needs of all students.
Numerous programs and partnerships exist within the Cherry Creek School District to support the mental health and social-emotional and behavioral health needs of students and families.
The Mental Health Team serves all buildings/programs in the district. The majority of schools are served by a team consisting of a social worker and a psychologist, providing the benefits of two disciplines with complementary training and backgrounds.
The Mental Health Team works with building administrators, counselors, nurses, special education teams, general education staff, families, and other community partners to evaluate and prioritize the mental health needs of students.
