Mental Health and Crisis Resources
Harding Support Services
Harding High School Licensed School Social Workers are prepared to provide a breadth of services. They may provide ongoing or short term crisis intervention directly to students. School social workers serve as a resource for students and their families when social emotional and behavioral concerns interfere with school performance. This could include life threatening situations, immediate loss of a significant person in the student's life, extreme emotional upset, or a traumatic stress situation.
