Prevention & Wellness
Healthy, Happy Comets
At Mason City Schools, we believe in educating the whole child - helping students believe in who they are and who they can become by providing supports to foster their educational and social-emotional learning. We believe in building meaningful relationships with every student and helping them take care of themselves mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Our prevention and wellness department is a multidisciplinary team ready to support the needs of all students. Our team works to promote student, staff, and community wellness through resource and program development as well as continuing to build community wellness partnerships. Supports and services provided by our counselors, mental wellness designers, and clinical team are available to all Mason City Schools students.
Our partnerships with Mindpeace, 1N5, Grant Us Hope, Joshua's Place, and Cincinnati Children's Hospital support these goals by providing access to therapeutic supports and services for students and families.
