Mental Health/Wellness

Ways to get help

At Portola, our learners' mental health and well-being is our main priority. With that said, we encourage our learners who have concerns about their own mental health or the mental health of their friends to seek help! Inform a trusted adult on campus as soon as possible, and do not wait until the end of the day!

If it is after school hours, please do not email your counselor or teacher about your concern. Instead, please contact Irvine Police Department immediately!

Inform Dispatch about the name of the student you are concerned about. Your call is anonymous. The police will go visit the student and provide support. You can follow up with your school counselor the next day about your call to the Police.
