Social / Emotional

At Northwood, student wellness is a top priority. We encourage students who have concerns about their mental health or that of a friend to seek help from a trusted adult.  On-campus mental health support staff include School Counselors, Wellness Coordinator, Project Success, School Psychologists, and School Resource Officer (SRO).

In the event of an emergency, call 911 or take your student to the nearest emergency room. If you have a serious concern outside of school hours, please do not email a staff member. Instead, please contact the Irvine Police Department at (949) 724-7000.
