Community Resources

Lake County offers resources to support students and parents in addressing a variety of concerns.  Some of these supports may be available for a reduced fee based on family need. Our Student Support Teams (SST) have collaborative relationships with many of the private therapists and counseling agencies listed here. Please contact your child's SST to learn more about which supports may be most appropriate.  We are here to help!
