Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I access additional support for the social emotional needs of my child? You can contact your student's teacher to help connect your student to a counselor for 1:1 support, or group support. Additionally, you can directly refer your student to the counselor by reaching out to the School Counselor above. The School Counselor is the first point of contact, and sometimes additional team members will be brought in to help support.
- What happens when my student meets with a counselor, psychologist, or mental health associate? Every student's session and experience is different. Some students need long term support, others need one check in meeting. Some want to talk about friendship issues, others are sharing about their experience of depression. No matter what brings your student to counseling, they will have space to share what's going on for them. Outside parties will be brought in if a student reports wanting to harm themselves, someone else, or if someone wants to harm them.
