Mental Health Support

Maintaining emotional wellness is very important. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many stressful changes to everyday life, and it is okay to ask for help. Taking care of your emotional health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. La Quinta has many incredible community partners that can provide support to anyone who is feeling emotionally unwell.


If your child(ren) may need mental health support there are professionals that can provide support at La Quinta, such as school counselors, school psychologists, mental health specialists, and school social workers. Any trusted adult at your child's school, like a teacher, school counselor, or administrator, will be able to help you connect to school-based mental health support.
