Mental Health and Wellness Resource Page

Welcome to the Mental Health & Wellness Page

Cabarrus County Schools (CCS) values the importance of overall student wellness. Wellness is much more than just physical; we believe it encompasses a student’s emotional and mental needs as well. CCS collaborates with multi-disciplinary teams to meet the social emotional needs of all students in order to provide a safe and healthy learning environment where children can succeed.

Each CCS school site has a Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP) team made up of School Counselors, School Social Workers, School Psychologist, Nurses, and School Resource Officers. SISP teams work together to support the whole child. With strong communication, collaboration, and engagement, CCS SISP teams strive to do what is best for students.

SISP Department Roles
