Social, Emotional & Mental Health Resources
Wellness is a term that encapsulates many dimensions: physical health, emotional health, occupational health, etc. Our hope is to give students and parents resources to manage or even improve their overall well-being.
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)
SEL is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Research shows that SEL can have a positive impact on school climate and promote a host of academic, social, and emotional benefits for students. Research of SEL in schools indicates that students receiving quality SEL instruction demonstrated...
- Better academic performance: achievement scores an average of 11 percentile points higher than students who did not receive SEL instruction
- Improved attitudes and behaviors: greater motivation to learn, deeper commitment to school, increased time devoted to schoolwork, and better classroom behavior;
- Fewer negative behaviors: decreased disruptive class behavior, noncompliance, aggression, delinquent acts, and disciplinary referrals; and
- Reduced emotional distress: fewer reports of student depression, anxiety, stress, and social withdrawal.
Pima Helpline - You Are Not Alone
Pima Helpline is a community-driven and community-made resource. We realize that everybody needs support for mental health, substance use, or addiction at some point in their life. We also know that looking for treatment can be confusing and scary.
We believe that it should be easy for Pima County residents to find help for mental health, substance use, and addiction. To achieve this, we created Pima Helpline as a centralized place to find mental health and addiction treatment, services, and support.
