_______________________________________

The 2021-2022 school year is wrapping up quickly! Our LISD students, staff, families and community have shown perseverance, resilience & grit in navigating around the many obstacles we have all faced this school year.


May is Mental Health Awareness Month! We need your help empowering communities with resources to keep Texas children, youth, and families mentally healthy.


Mental health is important all year round, but the month of May focuses on this topic to raise awareness and reduce mental health stigma. We encourage you to promote mental health awareness and resources with your networks. Our goal for this month is to reach as many individuals as possible to equip families with knowledge and resources to support mental health practices in Texas.

Let's Partner to Support Our Kids' Mental Health!

This is a great resource for families & school staff to foster & support mental health & wellness in all kids.
