The Talawanda School District understands that healthy learners are better learners and healthy families are better families.  In an effort to provide parents, caregivers and families in our district with accessible information to promote positive mental health, the Health Coordinating Council has recommended some resources that will hopefully be beneficial to families in the greater-Oxford area.

We will continue to add resources to this site as they become available.  If you have questions, concerns or recommendations regarding the resources, please contact Amy Macechko at
