Student Support

Let's Face It

Let's Face It. Together.

This program connects students in need with appropriate services to improve their mental health and quality of life.


  • TEXT: Students can text SMUSD to 741741 to get immediate and confidential help. They’ll be referred to a wellness advocate who can provide guidance and facilitate a plan that suits their unique needs.

  • TALK: If a student prefers to talk it out first, they can reach out to a counselor, or speak to a trusted adult on campus, who can guide them through the process.

  • CALL: If this is a mental health emergency, don’t wait! Call 988 immediately.

Connection to Mental Health Services?

As a SMUSD staff member or student, if you or someone in your family needs support or connection to services, Care Solace is available to help you navigate a connection to resources. Find out more here.


If you have been a victim/witness of bullying, harassment, racism, or any physical safety concerns for yourself or others on our SMHS campus, report it immediately!!
