The mental health/counseling team are available to support students for a variety of reasons. Supports include individual and group counseling, support groups, and post secondary planning (college, career, etc). We can also support students to identify their academic and social/emotional needs and collaborate with teachers, parents, or outside resources.
Mental health/counseling professionals help to support individuals to understand the self and develop a positive self image, work collaboratively with teachers and staff, maintain effective relationships with peers and adults, and support classroom lessons that focus on social emotional needs and career readiness.
We can also support students with referrals outside of school. Resources may include food, clothing, medical, and long-term mental health resources.
Students can make an appointment either by calling/emailing/stopping by our offices, or you can fill out the form using the link below.
