Social/Emotional Support

The Behavioral Health Team at Uplift is a group of mental health professionals who discuss interventions and plans for students struggling emotionally, and refer students for individual counseling, group counseling, and one-on-one support. If you would like to refer a student to the BHT for additional support, please contact Ms. Ford at kford19@cps.edu.
 
School Closure Resources: Please check out this list of resources for support with difficulties related to school closure & the COVID-19 pandemic, such as crisis lines, food and housing support, and mental health services.
