About Us

 
 
NormanAid Student Support Center:
The NormanAid Center provides confidential mental health services for Beverly Hills High School students. Mrs. Norman-Franks supervises and oversees the services at the NormanAid Center. Students are able to meet with Mrs. Norman-Franks on a short-term basis to assess how to best support the student. Mrs. Norman-Franks makes referrals to the various counselors working at the NormanAid Center as well as to outside agencies. Mrs. Norman-Franks may be contacted directly by email at anorman@bhusd.org, by phone at (310) 551-5100 ext. 8717, or by leaving a note for her at the NormanAid Center.
 
 
Visiting the NormanAid Center:
Students need to obtain permission from their teachers in order to receive services at the NormanAid Center. Students are welcome to drop in during lunchtime. Though drop-in counseling is sometimes available, it is recommended that students make an appointment. 
 
The NormanAid Center is located in Room V-33.
 
 
Note to students:
The NormanAid Center is a great place to come to if you need to speak with someone about something concerning you. At the NormanAid Center, Mrs. Norman-Franks, peer counselors, counseling interns, and therapists from the Maple Counseling Center are available to meet with you one on one. You can make an appointment to speak with someone or walk in. Topics that we are comfortable talking about include: abuse, alcohol, bullying, death, drugs, LGBTQ support, peer pressure, religion, sex, suicidal thoughts, and more. Students also come to the NormanAid Center to get support in school (academics, study skills, issues with teachers/classes, organization skills, time management, etc.). Because your  safety is our number one priority, we may need to consult with colleagues or break confidentiality if we are concerned that a student is harming themselves, someone else, or someone is hurting them. Please stop by the NormanAid Center at any time you feel we can be helpful to you!

If you are concerned for your child we STRONGLY encourage you to communicate with someone from Beverly Hills High School support staff: guidance counselor, intervention counselor, school psychologist or an administrator. Please note that Beverly Hills High School’s support staff is here to guide and help parents and their families. We understand that these concerns are private and may be difficult to discuss. We wont share this information with colleges, employers or other staff members. Because your child’s safety is our number one priority, we may need to consult with colleagues or break confidentiality if we are concerned that a student is harming themselves, someone else, or someone is hurting them.
