What families and school partners are saying

"Research shows that students receiving mental health services [at] school are successful. It helps to remove the barriers of the parent picking the student up, taking them to their appointment, and the student missing classroom instruction. Hazel is the perfect infrastructure to ensure that we meet the needs of all of our students."

"I was very surprised at how nice the therapist was. She is very nice and really easy to talk to. I was happy she is black. I feel like she can understand things that other people can’t."

Aurora Public Schools

"At first she really, really was reluctant to go. I was allowed to sit in for the first session so that broke the ice and helped us both feel very comfortable. After that, she wasn’t so apprehensive...and once she finished the second visit, she actually looked forward to going to the remaining ones. I was shocked, so whatever her counselor did, it made her feel really comfortable."

How to access Hazel

At school

When a student has a therapy appointment, school staff use an iPad to connect the student directly to a Hazel therapist over live video.

At home

When a student has an appointment, they can connect directly with a therapist over live video on any computer or smart device from home.

1. Sign up

Legal guardian gives permission for the child to see a Hazel therapist. If the student is over 18, the student can consent themselves.

2. Student referred to therapy

Legal guardian, school counselor, teacher, or other school staff member refers the student to therapy by contacting Hazel. A Hazel Family Resource Manager contacts the legal guardian to schedule an appointment.

3. First therapy session

We match the student with a licensed therapist that best fits the student’s unique needs, and schedule an appointment.

4. Weekly therapy sessions

The therapist helps the student identify and practice strategies to cope, and supports them in developing a plan to start to feel better.

5. Therapy completion

The student has achieved their therapy goals and is discharged from the therapy program.

6. Care coordination

If needed, Hazel’s clinical support team will help connect the student to long-term mental health services in their community.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
