Counseling, Mental Health & Family Services

You don’t need to feel alone during the pandemic, or while participating in distance learning. There are a variety of services and counseling options to help support students and families during this historic time period. The school community works closely with Western Youth Services, Bilingual Parent Advocates, and School Counselors. If you or your child is struggling, please reach out to your teacher or our principal, Howard Johnston, to help put you in contact with the appropriate help. 

Santiago STEAM Magnet Community is here for you. In addition to counseling, mental health and family services, we encourage you to check out any of our Facebook groups to connect with parents and families who are going through similar experiences. 

Together we can get through this.
