Mental Health Services
Thanks to the voter-approved Levy, all schools in the Issaquah School District have a designated School-based Mental Health Counselor. This program was established to support the mental health needs of students in a nurturing environment. Our hope is to foster the well-being of all students in the Issaquah School District so students are safe, healthy, and ready to learn.
