Social workers are the link between the home, school, and community to promote and support the students’ academic and social success.

We provide direct and indirect services related to a student’s social, emotional, and life adjustment to school and/or society. 


 

SMALL GROUPS

Social workers are facilitating small groups at several schools.  Schools may differ in the groups being offered according to the needs of their student population.  Groups include grief/loss, self-esteem, conflict resolution, stress management, anxiety/depression, healthy relationships, body image, and social skills.  Please check with the school to see which group is being conducted.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

SB1523 - Jake’s Law In 2020, the Arizona legislature passed Senate Bill 1523, establishing the Children’s Behavioral Health Services Fund. This $8 million fund is administered by AHCCCS and provides behavioral health services to uninsured/underinsured students who are referred for services by an educational institution. Social workers are able to make these direct referrals to outside agencies, which for Mohave County are Mohave Mental Health and Southwest Behavioral Health.
