Tappan Zee High School Mental Health


Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to the TZHS Mental Health web page. TZHS offers services and resources to support student mental health & wellness.  We encourage students to reach out to their School Counselor, Prevention Counselor, School Social Worker, or School Psychologist if they have any additional questions or concerns regarding their mental health.

We have compiled this site to provide some information about common mental health concerns among high school students.  Please visit our Resources and TZHS  Wellness Center pages to check out information on relevant mental health topics, community-based organizations/resources, videos, articles, and more!
