Every year the school social work team provides counseling to over 300 students individually and in group. This is free service provided to the children of Pacoima Charter School. We help children cope with a variety of issues, including:
- Self Esteem
- Social Skills
- Grief & Loss
- Divorce and Separation
- Other Trauma
We help the students and their families attain a higher quality of life. In the rare event that a student's needs exceed what we can support, we will refer the families to mental health agencies.
(If you feel that you or your child is having a psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health - ACCESS at 1-800-854-7771).
