Community, State, and National Agencies

School Counselors:

School counselors are available at every Bellevue school to support students in need of assistance. School counselors can support students by developing emotional literacy, strengthening emotional regulation, and increasing coping skills. School counselors can support students and families in finding resources for counseling, both inside and outside of school. If a student’s ability to participate in class or at school is impacted by depressive symptoms or anxiety, school counselors can assist in creation and implementation of a 504 Plan or a special education referral. Counselors can help students with short-term concerns and help facilitate access to more long-term help. To learn more about what school counselors can do, please visit our Counseling webpage.

Mental Health Assistance Team (MHAT):

MHAT counselors are available at every high school, middle school, and choice school. They help provide the Signs of Suicide Lesson in grades 7-10, as well as provide the BIMAS2 screen for students in grades 7 through 11. The MHAT counselors are available to provide mental health counseling for students grades 7 through 11. To access an MHAT counselor, please contact your student’s School counselor.

School-Based Community Mental Health Counselors:

In addition to the school counselors and MHAT counselors, the Bellevue School District partners with multiple community-based mental health providers to support students after initial reports of suicide thinking. Counselors from these agencies can provide counseling in the school to help students in need. Contact your school counselor or MHAT counselor to request these services.
