Veteran and military families face many unique challenges. They may struggle with the stress of deployment (or coming home), parenting, finances, employment, or domestic violence. SFSC’s services are designed to help veteran and active duty families find community resources, support kids, build resiliency, develop effective parenting skills, and manage stress. SFSC understands the challenges of veteran and military families because our team has lived military service backgrounds – personally or through a family member.

This resource was developed in response to a request from OCDE. There are legislative requirements that Orange County schools have an accessible list of support resources for LGBTQ students. This comprehensive resource list includes resources for teachers and educators of LGBTQ students. The resources are largely specific to Orange County and include crisis resources as well as primary and behavioral healthcare resources.
This guide is intended to support local education agencies (LEAs) and county behavioral health departments (BHDs) as they seek to partner to deliver comprehensive, high-quality school mental health services. These are challenging collaborative efforts with helpful information and tools to address barriers spread out in many different places. The goal of this resource is to create a library of helpful resources and organize tools around critical topics and challenges. Through this project, we aim to generate applicable resources specific to the needs of partners to further the growth of school mental health partnerships. Each section includes an overview of the topic and a collection of related resources.
