Behavioral Health and Wellness Department
The new department of Behavioral Health and Wellness (BHAW) was created to provide more effective, coordinated, and collaborative support for the growing behavior and mental health needs of students and staff district wide. The primary physical, mental health, and behavior prevention and intervention personnel and programs (PBIS, Trauma-Informed Care, Mental Health Counselors and Centers, Social Workers, PE and Health, and Nurses) are now housed in the same department. These are critical supports and components of FBISD’s Multi-Tiered System of support (MTSS) for behavioral health.
Mission Statement (Department):
Behavioral Health and Wellness exists to collaboratively support and advocate through resources, prevention, and intervention to nurture the health and wellness of the whole child.
Vision Statement (District and Department):
Fort Bend ISD will graduate students who exhibit the attributes of the District’s Profile of a Graduate.
