Mrs. Kayla Thomas
Hello. My name is Kayla Thomas and I am the District Mental Health Services Coordinator here at Bibb County Schools.
A little bit about me: I am an alumna of the University of Montevallo and the University of Alabama with a Master's in Social Work. I am a Licensed Master Social Work and have 7 years experience working in vast areas of mental health. I believe this opportunity has come full circle for me, as I started my career in school-based mental health, but this time I want to use my passion and experience in mental health to educate young people on the importance, bring awareness, and reduce the stigma of mental health.
Mental Health is a strong focus of mine as it continues to evolve throughout our district with families, students, and others. If we can all find a way to connect within our community and with others, I feel we can live a healthier life. There are many challenges and rewards at work; I continue to enjoy working with many individuals and assisting them in making relationships that allow them to grow.
I serve all the buildings (9) in our district; I work with students at different levels based on their needs. I collaborate with community agencies and families in building healthy connections to resources available within Bibb County and beyond as needed. My goal is to make sure students and families have access to resources that will benefit them in school and in society. I am here as a resource to families within our community, so please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Please feel free to contact me anytime. My office hours are Monday- Friday, 7:30am- 3pm.
