Social Emotional Support

Hello Cardinals!
I am Mrs. Elizabeth Leal, your WHS mental health counselor. I am pleased to assist you with any emotional support and/or link you to community resources (food, shelter, therapy etc.). 
 
I hope you have a successful and exciting 20-21 school year! It has been an interesting few months and you may be experiencing lots of mixed feelings from enjoying being at home more to having difficulty concentrating and focusing, or various other emotions. It is completely understandable and valid. We get you, you're not alone! All of our staff cares first and foremost about your safety and well being. Please reach out to me, your teachers, counselors, or those adults that you trust for guidance if needed. Remember to be KIND to yourself and others. We are all trying to adjust and do the best we can. 
 
You can reach me via email at elizabeth.leal@wuhsd.org or call/text me at 626-788-1954 Monday through Friday from 7:30am-4pm. Please note that I will only be available to respond during those days and times. If its a life or death emergency please call 911. Scroll down for additional support hotlines.
