FCPS Mental Health and Additional Resources
Being apart from each other hasn’t been easy for anyone. Welcome to the Healthy Minds Podcast from Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). Hear about how we are all handling uncertainty; get new ideas to help your child, friends and families feel better; and learn to help yourself feel stronger and more energized. If you need a little help to feel OK, it’s OK--the Healthy Minds Podcast is here for you.
It can be hard to know whether you need to reach out to a professional when you are worried about your child’s behavior or if you see that your child is struggling. And if you do reach out, what type of specialist and treatment are right for your child? Healthy Minds Fairfax helps youth and families in the Fairfax-Falls Church community access mental health and substance abuse services.
