Mental Wellness

Everyone needs someone to talk to. DialCare is standing by.

In addition to the continuing counseling services provided by campus counselors and social workers, Grand Prairie ISD is offering an opportunity for students in 6th through 12th grades to receive virtual counseling services with a trained licensed professional counselor before and after school hours and weekends through DialCare. Counseling is available through the app or on the phone.

Adolescents are often faced with social-emotional challenges that may be difficult for them to handle on their own. Many times, just having the chance to talk through these issues can lead to personal growth and wellness. Actively taking steps to improve one's overall well-being and happiness is a key component of self-care. Self-care plays a vital role in helping adolescents cope with and conquer the challenges of life, especially during these unprecedented times.

This program is easy to use:

• Students can schedule counseling sessions Monday through Friday before or after school hours and on Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Counseling sessions should not be scheduled during school hours.

• Our mental health professionals will reach out via phone or video chat upon request.

• Consultations are available in both English and Spanish.

How it works:

Step 1: Students can schedule an appointment by app, website or phone: 844-249-4094

When signing in through the website or app, your member ID is your student ID

Step 2: Our mental health professionals will reach out to the student via phone or video chat at the scheduled appointment time.

Step 3: Appointments can last up to 30 minutes.
