The school counseling department is working on improving the emotional health of our students by providing several programs that help students be proactive about their emotional health needs with preventive programs. We offer in class and group counseling programs. The goal is to teach techniques that deal with the issues of today teens in a positive proactive manner.
The groups are based on the needs of the student population. These groups will help students continue to build important skills that will better manage symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress management. The groups will also focus on improving motivation and organization skills through various activities, role-plays, and games with their peers. Being in a group setting is a positive experience, as they provide a greater support network for students.
