• It is the mission of the Mental Health Liaison to serve every Asheville City Schools student in need of therapeutic services by:

    i) supporting all students and families in receiving equitable access to the mental health resources and services they require. 
    ii) constantly evaluate the mental health needs of the district and to find excellent community partners to provide excellent therapeutic services to meet those ever changing needs
    iii) responding to mental health crises in the moment and providing direct support to school administrators and families.
    If you are the parent/guardian of an ACS student and you are seeking mental health support for your child- please reach out to luke.mackenzie@acsgmail.net to schedule a phone consultation. The Mental Health Liaison will be able to outline different therapeutic options available and assist with setting up evaluations and/or referring to providers.
