Personal and Social Counseling
School counselors develop and deliver a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes positive development which includes offering education, prevention and short-term intervention services designed to promote positive mental health and to remove any barriers to student success.
Examples of student centered services include:
- Responsive services including internal and external referral procedures, short-term counseling or crisis.
- Individual planning with students addressing academic, career and personal-social needs
- Educate teachers, administrators, parents/guardians, and community stakeholders about the mental health concerns of students.
- Advocate and collaborate with school and community stakeholders to ensure students and their families have access to mental health services.
If a student experiences any type of social, emotional or mental health issues, or is worried about a friend or family member they should contact their guidance counselor.
