Suicide Prevention

We want everyone to feel safe and to be safe here at West Hills Middle School. To assist in this goal, our counselors teach suicide prevention classes to all students.  This suicide prevention resource list has many resources for our students and community who might need immediate help in dealing with suicidal behaviors or ideation.

Corona and Mental Health Resources

If you or someone you know is in need of immediate assistance, you can reach out via SafeUT. Using SafeUT, a student or parent can report concerns about suicide & Self-Harm, depression, anxiety, mental health issues, bullying, among other issues. SafeUT allows tips and concerns to be submitted via text or a phone call.
