When you or someone you love is dealing with a mental health concern, sometimes it’s a lot to handle. It’s important to remember that mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable. People experience symptoms of mental diseases differently.
Titus County Shared Services provides mental health services to students in Mt. Pleasant ISD, Harts Bluff ISD, and Winfield ISD. If you, or someone you love, has been helped by a school mental health professional, please take the time this month to thank them for the role they play in our schools.
