School Counselors

School counselors are available at every Bellevue school to support students in need of immediate assistance for thoughts of suicide. School counselors are trained in our suicide intervention procedures are often the first responders to reports of a student thinking about suicide. Counselors can help students with short-term concerns and help facilitate access to more long-term help.

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 also trained in the district procedures around suicide intervention.
