Mental Health and Social Work Support

Beth KennedyAt Sacred Heart Academy, we understand that what's going on in a student's personal life could have an impact on her academics.  That is why we have a full-time licensed social worker, Beth Kennedy, on campus to assist our students and their parents in a confidential manner when additional support is needed with personal, social or emotional issues.
If you have any questions, concerns, or you would just like to connect, please reach out to Beth Kennedy at [email protected] or (516) 483-7383 ext. 228.

Partnership with Northwell Health

  • Sacred Heart Academy has entered into a partnership with Northwell Health to provide support and training for school staff, resources for families, and emergency mental health services for students. To learn more, see below and tab to your right.

    Behavioral Health Center

    A key component of the district's partnership with Northwell Health is the Behavioral Health Center, located at 156 First Street (lower level) in Mineola. It is a place to access urgent mental health support for school-aged children and adolescents who may not necessarily require the services of an emergency room. Northwell professionals will meet with students in need of immediate evaluation and make connections for appropriate care. 

    The Behavioral Health Center is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8am-8pm and Tuesday 9:30am-5:30pm for the exclusive use of students from partnering school districts. Additional information is available here:
