Mental Health

The physical, emotional and social well-being of a student is critical to their academic success and future accomplishments. Through collaborations with the Santa Clara County Department of Behavioral Health and other community agencies and partners, the Franklin-McKinley School District has established a sustainable infrastructure that maximizes resources and utilizes current staff to provide services to all students in the district.

School-Based Mental Health Services
School-based mental health services are routinely provided in a school setting by trained mental health professionals (i.e. school social workers and interns) focused on prevention, intervention, and crisis. These services support the mental, behavioral, and social-emotional health of students and promote success in the learning process.

School-based services are available to students regardless of insurance status. Students may be linked with community agencies that accept Medi-Cal or school social workers/ interns when students have private insurance or no insurance.

Social Work Interns
Franklin McKinley School District welcomes Bachelor and Master level social work interns from local Universities. Social work interns are involved with students one on one, in group settings, and with parents in support of their child’s attendance and well-being. The Intern Training Program is a staple component of the Student Wellness & Support Services Program. Please contact Brenda Salcedo, District Social Worker at (408) 283-6098 for more information.
