Under the Department of Prevention & Intervention, the Irvine Family Resource Center offers a multidisciplinary approach to mental health and support and wellness for children, adolescents, and their families. The services that we offer are:
Mental Health Services
Short-term, evidence-based mental health services provided by licensed mental health therapists for IUSD K-12 students and families. Our services are free to students and families who may not have easy access to affordable mental health or family support services. We aim to provide effective and individualized support for our clients dealing with mental health concerns in an intimate and confidential setting where we can foster connection, trust, and growth.
Mental health referrals to community agencies and other programs
Referrals to school-based supports
Basic needs support for food, clothing, and housing
Drug and/or alcohol resources
The Irvine Family Resource Center hosts enrichment workshops that are offered to IUSD students, parents, and caregivers. IUSD teenagers can participate in enrichment workshops which will introduce them to life skills such as stress management, coping skills, effective communication, goal setting, and positive relationships. IUSD parents and caregivers can attend enrichment workshops where they will learn positive discipline skills that are needed at home for building capable kids and healthy families.
For more information on upcoming enrichment workshops contact Christine Guerrero.

Parent Videos and Resources. These short and engaging video Parent Pep Talks are designed to offer strategies and suggestions for some of the greatest challenges parents are currently facing. This series of videos begins with Adult Self-Care because we often take care of our children before we take care of ourselves. They are followed by videos that provide practical strategies for thriving through the ever-complex adolescent years.
