LWSD Partnership with EvergreenHealth Social Workers
Welcome to students, parents and staff of the Lake Washington School District (LWSD).
The LWSD partners with EvergreenHealth to employ social workers at each of its four high schools—Eastlake, Juanita, Lake Washington and Redmond.
The social workers are on site at the high schools to provide crisis intervention, psychosocial and risk assessments, safety planning and brief interventions. They provide ongoing behavioral health support until they are able to connect students with an outside referral.
Staff and parents are also able to consult with the social workers regarding interventions, psychoeducation and community resources, and are able to assist with referrals to primary care, specialty care and mental health providers.
Meet Our Social Workers
Social workers are available to provide support to LWSD high school students, parents and staff every day that school is in session (M-F, excluding holidays) during regular school hours.
To meet, contact your school's social worker at the email address above to schedule an appointment.
