STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SAP), SLO COUNTY
The SAP is a partnership between San Luis Obispo County, several local schools, and The LINK. It aims to identify troubled students so they can receive the helping services they need through a team approach. The SAP Coordinator and Family Advocate at a school site helps students who are dealing with a variety of personal problems, including those related to conflict with others, depression, anxiety, grief, recent life changes, alcohol, and drug use. SAP can help if you are concerned about your child’s reaction to the recent death of a loved one, divorce, family relocation, relationship problems, bullying or other traumatic event.
The SAP can provide individual and group counseling, student and family referrals to a variety of community resources, life skills training, interventions for at-risk behaviors, education through community and social service agencies, violence prevention strategies, and skills in decision-making and conflict resolution.
SAP services are available free of charge at the following school sites:
Flamson Middle School
Atascadero Junior High School
Santa Lucia Middle School
Los Osos Middle School
