Student Mental Health
Students have many experiences throughout high school that can result in a variety of emotions that range from happy and rewarding to sad and traumatic. Chantilly High School cares about the well-being of every student. At times when emotions become overwhelming or difficult to handle, we encourage students to seek help whether it be for themselves or a friend. Parents and teachers can support kids too by familiarizing themselves with signs and symptoms of emotional distress and acknowledging that any student can experience distress at one time or another.
Chantilly Student Services department consists of school counselors, school psychologists, and social workers all of whom are available for students while at school. Parents and guardians are welcome to contact the Student Services staff members when they have concerns about their kids, but when kids aren’t in school and families need help we offer the resources below.
