Reaching out for help

We have a number of resources depending on your needs and we hope you reach out for help when issues arise for your student. 

We are here to help and please remember,


School Counselors are a great first stop to talk, get general advice and understand how you might talk about issues at home.

To access your counselor earily:

CONNECT- Free to students K-12 Call 1-800-926-9619

Connect is a resource to help address a broad range of personal difficulties that may be causing distress. This benefit is free to any Cassia student grades K-12. Families and schools feel the effects of grief, loss, substance abuse, personal or emotional challenges, stress, anxiety and depression. Cassia schools are committed to helping students by paying for an introduction to counseling services. This program is designed to help students with their emotional health needs. This ultimately helps families and schools. Connect has been funded entirely through private donations.

Partnership with Family Health Services- select schools

At Declo Junior, Declo HS, Burley Junior and Cassia HS we have an agreement with a local counseling service that gives access to a licensed counselor at the school, during the school day. 

Mr. Mathew Bowden is avaiable to take clients and works with students during or after the school day, on site. 

They bill insurance and have a sliding scale for payment that matches an ability to pay, so payment isn't an obstacle for services. Chat with the school counselor, at these schools, about these services.
