mindpeace health tipsWe all know that mental health needs don’t take a summer break and that our students continue to need support even when they are not at school.  

That is why our MindPeace partners and therapists are still available to support Lakota students via telehealth (either through a virtual or phone appointment). If your child isn’t currently seeing one of our therapists, but you have concerns, please feel free to reach out to your school’s therapist to discuss appropriate next steps for your child. If your school does not yet have a therapist identified, you can find resources, look for community providers or other school partners by visiting
