Mental Health

At Taylor County Schools we believe that having a happy, well-focused student leads to academic success and a positive all around school experience for all students. Sometimes mental health issues can become a problem in achieving a student’s goals. We have many different mental health providers that we encourage our students to use with their parents agreement. These mental health providers can see the student at home or in the school with the completion of a parent permission form.
