    • Welcome to Independence Wellness

      • The Wellness Centers across the district aim to enhance the delivery of coordinated services with the goal to support students and families with their social and emotional support, across the district.

        Our Wellness Centers focus on the following five areas of need:

        • Mental Health
        • Substance Use & Prevention
        • Attendance & Truancy Support
        • Assessment & Referral
        • Community Partnerships & Referrals

        Why Wellness?

        Wellness Centers on high school campuses are a powerful investment in the health and academic potential of students. They provide increased early interventions for students experiencing emotional problems that may be impacting their ability to access their learning. Wellness programs have a proven ability to reconnect students back to learning when health and social-emotional barriers are present.
