A healthy body starts with a healthy mind

Across thousands of urgent care visits, Hazel found many physical symptoms, such as headaches and stomach aches, were caused by underlying mental health concerns, like anxiety or depression.

The Hazel HEART™ Protocol

Hazel’s Early Assessment, Response, and Treatment protocol (Hazel HEART™) directly addresses the challenges students, families, and schools face for streamlining identification, treatment, and fast access to ongoing support for mental health concerns. Delivered in conjunction with our urgent care model, Hazel Heart™ creates a single entry point to comprehensive health care.

How it works

Hazel HEART™ provides students with access to culturally competent and multi-lingual support from licensed therapists.
Mental health screening
Hazel immediately evaluates mental health concerns and behavioral health assessments. The team works closely with students by using comprehensive early identification and screening tools to determine the next steps.
Timely access to ongoing therapy
It can take 1-6 months to secure a therapy appointment for your student. Hazel eliminates lengthy wait times by providing expert advice and consultation from licensed professionals, as well as ongoing therapy sessions and connection to long-term, local care providers as needed.
Crisis consultation
We offer on-demand crisis clinical support for staff, parents, and students during school hours.

Our licensed medical providers and qualified therapists work with you to determine the best plan of action.

Care management

Our team provides ongoing case management and care coordination for each student's care journey. We leverage relationships with local health providers and the community to build a wellness ecosystem for long-term mental health support.

Hazel helps districts respond to the growing need for mental health support

A recent rise in youth suicide attempts combined with a 13% increase in moderate to severe depression among adolescents has completely overwhelmed our current healthcare infrastructure, especially in schools. From prolonged referral processes for primary care to a shortage of licensed therapists, families, and schools face immense challenges in getting children the immediate mental health care they need.

Reach out
A student, parent, educator, counselor, or nurse notices a

Hazel provides resources to help support the child or sets up ongoing sessions with a licensed therapist until the student feels better or can access local support.

Hazel gets students the right support quickly
During the pandemic, a high school student was having a hard time coping. He was sad about COVID-19 impacting his senior year, and he was worried about the state of the world. The student was also struggling with some personal conflicts, and he felt he didn't have the right support at home.

After discussing his feelings, a Hazel doctor connected him with resources that he described as “life-changing.” He was very grateful and shared that he didn't know where to go for help before Hazel.
Hazel expands Health Services at school
A child came into the health center with a sprained wrist. The school nurse helped her ice the injury, but she was still in pain. A Hazel doctor helped the nurse put the student’s wrist in a splint and gave her over-the-counter medicine to help relieve the pain.

The school nurse expressed how grateful she was that Hazel could help her care for the child. She shared that before Hazel, she could not give medication to students, and the health office did not have splints available. She thanked Hazel for helping her do more for students in need of care.
Hazel is convenient and fast for families
A mother noticed her son was getting low on his asthma medication. She tried to schedule a visit with his doctor to refill his prescription, but all of the available appointments required her to take off from work, and her son would need to miss school. She needed to get her son to the doctor so he wouldn't run out of medicine, so she reached out to Hazel.

Hazel was able to see her son and send the refill to a local pharmacy within one day. The mother was happy that there was no need to interrupt school or work to get her son to a doctor for his medicine. She was also amazed at how easy and fast the entire process was.


Student Story
A student was coughing and sneezing a lot, but her family wasn’t sure if she was sick or had allergies. Thankfully, her school used Hazel, and they could get an answer.

After talking with the school nurse and the Hazel provider about her symptoms and medical history, the student was happy to find out it was likely allergies. She got some medicine and returned to class feeling better.

Parent Story
Shortly after COVID-19 began, a student began to develop tics. Her parents took her to a neurologist, but they wanted to get her into counseling as well. The student’s mother was having a hard time finding answers to her questions and didn’t know where to start the process, so she turned to Hazel.

The Hazel doctor listened as the mother shared her concerns and frustrations. Hazel reassured her that they would find the right services for her child. After the initial visit, the Hazel doctor partnered with the school counselor and the student’s mother to identify resources and counseling services that are a good fit.
A physical health visit leads to an important discovery
A student came into the nurse’s office because his vision went blurry. The Hazel doctor looked at his eyes, but he did not see any injury. As he asked him questions about his symptoms, he started to sense that he was down about something. After a few minutes, the student shared that he was really sad because his mom was recently diagnosed with cancer. He explained that he feels worried, and it’s hard for him to focus.

Hazel called home, and the student’s mother confirmed her diagnosis. They discussed how to help manage the child’s stress, and Hazel offered to connect the child with counseling resources through the school. The mother was very grateful for the guidance and was eager to get her child help during a stressful time.
