The Azusa Unified School District is committed to promoting student wellness to help all students achieve academic, social-emotional, and behavioral success.
Student mental health wellness is supported by AUSD through a variety of services ranging from school wellness campaigns to more intensive and individualized support programs. We also work closely with partners and community service agencies for additional service considerations to best support our students and families.
In a time of physical distancing, we want to reassure the students and families in our district that we care about the mental health and wellbeing of our school community.
This website contains well-being and mental health resources for students, families, and staff. If you need assistance, please call 626-858-6168
