Behavioral Health Services
SCOE’s Behavioral Health Services Department strives to improve mental health, wellbeing, and educational outcomes for all students, families, and staff in Sonoma County. Using a multi-tiered model shaped by data-driven partnerships with districts, the Behavioral Health department designs and coordinates school-based, culturally responsive and inclusive mental health and wellness support for students, families, and staff. We strive to increase protective factors, prioritizing support for marginalized populations, starting with those situated farthest from opportunity.
