Mental Health Services Coordinator Mikayla Reese

  • Mikayla Reese

    Mental health and wellness is an important priority for Athens City Schools. The system added a critical component to the student services efforts in 2020 by hiring the first-ever Mental Health Services Coordinator to serve students and families across the district by coordinating available services and resources to support mental health and wellness. Mikayla Reese is a licensed master social worker who works as a liaison between school, families and community agencies. A wide variety of student issues, such as anxiety and depression, exist in school, and the pandemic has caused additional stress. Having a dedicated professional to focus on mental health wellness and to connect families to needed resources is a significant benefit for the system as a whole and makes a real difference for students and families.
