  • On September 19, MCS hosted a district wide Family Mental Health Fair at Midtown Elementary School.  This event featured an interactive expo with hands-on activities for students and adults to support mental wellness provided by The Enrichment Center.  Information was available from professionals at community agencies, including the Mental Health Center, Military Child Coalition, The Caring House, Autism Network, National Children's Advocacy Center, Crisis Services, Madison PD, and more.  The student art showcase was a great success! See pictures below. 

    Mental Health Matters: Connecting the Dots is brought to you by Madison City Schools and Madison City Councils of PTAs.

Area Resources

What can you do if you are concerned with your child’s mental health?

  • Consult with your child’s doctor or pediatrician. Describe what concerns you and ask for recommendations. They may provide a referral for a Mental Health Professional. 

    Contact key people at your child’s school. Who should you reach out to? The School Counselor is a great resource to start if you aren’t sure.  Teachers can also provide insight such as changes or concerns in your child’s behavior. Ask: Are they noticing similar concerns? 

    Crisis help lines are available:

    If you or your child are in immediate danger, please call 911. 

    Remember: You are not alone!  Reach out for help.
