Referral for Services
Please talk with your school's Professional School Counselor or Mental Health Professional for more information.
Referral process and online referral form: The Shelby County Schools Mental Health Center (SCSMHC) offers its services to all students of the district irrespective of socio-economic or educational status. A written referral is required for all Tier 2 and Tier 3 mental health interventions. Mental health referrals should be made by the school guidance counselor, acting on behalf of a teacher, school administrator, or parent/legal guardian, and ideally under the guidance of a school-based team, i.e., Student Referral Team (SRT), Student Support Team (SST), or Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team. However, parents and students are also permitted to request services on their own. All requests for service must be communicated by the school counselor to the SCSMHC clinician in writing using the most recently approved version of the referral form.
