• Information on the Mental Health Challenges Facing Military Students


    The School Health Services Program is intended to minimize health barriers to learning for public school students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.  It addresses day-to-day student health needs, emergency health needs, and in-school management of chronic and acute health conditions like diabetes, asthma, allergies, and epilepsy.  In-school care management helps to ensure that student health conditions do not prevent students from attending school. 

    Hazel Health has partnered with Duval County Public Schools to provide access to quality health care services for all students, at no cost to families, this school year. A school health representative can initiate a video visit with a Hazel health care provider while your child is at-school to provide either physical or mental health services. Therapy sessions with Hazel Health are a safe space and are private and confidential.

    As a parent of a military youth, you can help your children learn how to develop healthy ways to deal with stress and life’s curveballs. Sometimes the stresses children face may require professional help. These situations could include a parent’s deployment, a family move or the general pressures of teen life. Support can be found through your school MFLC or at https://www.militaryonesource.mil/family-relationships/parenting-and-children/parenting-youthand-teens/child-counseling-helps-kids-develop-healthy-habits/
