WALLA WALLA – Walla Walla Public Schools has launched a new multilingual mental health services program available for all students at no cost to families with Hazel Health. With Hazel Health, students can speak with a licensed therapist from school, or at home. The district is making these services available so that all students have access to mental health services, without a long wait time to see a therapist.
Services include short-term therapy visits. These therapy sessions can help students cope with everyday issues such as anxiety, bullying, withdrawal, grief, peer and family relationships, depression, not enjoying things they used to enjoy, or simply not feeling like themselves.

Hazel Health also offers care coordination. Family resource managers from Hazel Health will work closely with families to coordinate their children’s care. If a child needs additional services outside of what Hazel Health can offer, Hazel Health will help families connect with local providers.

Hazel was founded in the San Francisco Bay area in 2015 to offer health services to students through the schools they attend.To schedule an appointment with Hazel Health, visit
