Mental Health

Our schools support the social-emotional development of students through our school-couselingbased counseling program. Our school-based counseling program is designed to provide opportunities for students to participate in individual and small group counseling experiences that provide support and skill-building for coping with family stressors, academic struggles, and personal issues.
