WE ARE UTVA
MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
Even though we will regularly meet with students regarding their social and emotional needs, sometimes students and families need a little extra help in supporting their mental health and well-being.
SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION
Youth suicide is a serious public health issue in Utah. Our state ranks in the top five in the nation with the most significant mental health concerns. It is important that we understand how to identify the warning signs and know where to find the support, if needed.
Please review this link: Suicide Awareness for UTVA Families for more information.
As part of your child’s education, elementary schools in Utah schedule a maturation presentation for 5th grade students each year. All 5th grade students will be invited to participate in a maturation program, which includes Health Core Standards outlined by the Utah State Board of Education.
