• School-Based Counseling Services

    Support for students, education for staff

    Student talking with counselor Edina Public Schools partners with community agencies to provide mental and chemical health services. They offer services at our schools, similar to having a satellite office in the district. The intention is to make it convenient for students and families to access support and follow-up while minimizing the need to leave school for appointments.

    Having offices in our schools means these professionals get to know our students, teachers and staff around the district. They work to build relationships with staff and to grow awareness and recognition of behaviors that may be related to mental health concerns or chemical abuse, and to help them know how to support students and families.

    How to access services

    Although these organizations have designated offices at Edina schools, they are not drop-in clinics. All services are confidential and may be insurance-based. If you wish to access the services of these providers, please contact the social worker, psychologist or a school counselor at your school to request information.
