Mental Health & Substance Use
In order to ensure student safety and wellbeing, each Highline middle school participates in a mental health and substance use prevention and intervention program. The goal of the SBIRT program is to support students’ physical, emotional and social well-being, as well as to minimize adolescent drug, alcohol, and nicotine use.
Learn more about the program, see FAQs and meet the Highline staff responsible for the implementation of SBIRT.
Highline Public Schools received a three year grant for 10 schools from Kaiser Permanente to establish stronger district support teams focused on mental health. Schools supported by this grant are Hilltop, McMicken, Parkside, Des Moines, Hazel Valley, White Center Heights, and Midway elementary schools; and Evergreen and Highline high schools.
