Newsletter on anxiety screenings

CPLA would like to send you and your school community a special newsletter on anxiety screenings that may be conducted during children's doctor visits. A special task force has recommended that anxiety screenings be administered at doctor appointments for children. In recent years, more children and teens have been affected by anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions, and it has been worsened by the pandemic. In the first year of the pandemic, global prevalence of anxiety and depression jumped 25 percent, according to the World Health Organization.

We are hoping that advanced notice will help your parents to be confident at their child's next doctor appointment to disclose any concerns if asked and to bring up any concerns they may have if they are not asked about it. Instead of being surprised by such questions, we want our parents to feel knowledgeable about the possibility of this screening for all children's mental health.

Suicide Prevention

As the holidays quickly approach, we felt it important to send out a newsletter that you can share with your school family on a difficult topic that often goes unnoticed during the busyness of the holidays: suicide.

While this is a dark topic, we believe that it is necessary to talk about it as shame grows in silence. Additionally, often those who are suffering find the holidays especially difficult.

We hope that you can take a moment out of your busy day to read this newsletter, educate yourself on some common signs of suicidal ideation and behavior in children, and share with your staff and your families. Our goal is to inform and empower everyone in your school community so that you can support the children in your care in the best possible way.

In addition to the resources featured in the newsletter, here are more resources for suicide prevention:


Counseling Partners of Los Angeles (CPLA)

Once again the school will be offering a comprehensive school-based counseling program and support services at no additional cost for this service. Parents, teachers, staff, or students themselves can request to see a counselor. An informed consent form needs to be signed by the parent/guardian to begin the process. A signed informed consent form is NOT a request/referral for counseling. However, getting the parental signature ahead of time speeds up the process for our counselors to begin providing counseling to our students. Counselor Jacquline Salvador will be working with us.

This service will begin on Monday, September 12.

Counselor Intern, Jacqueline Salvador
