School-Based Mental Health


School Counselor Services Overview

Responsive services are activities designed to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include school counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.

Individual School Counseling

School counselors may work with a student on a short-term basis in a safe, positive, and confidential setting to address issues that may impede a student’s academic achievement. Topics are based on the needs of the student and may include understanding feelings, changing families/divorce, grief, stress, social skills, academics, bullying, problem-solving, and decision-making.

Small-Group School Counseling

An opportunity for students sharing similar issues or concerns to work together in a small group environment consisting of about 4-6 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 6-8 weeks. Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include changing families/divorce, grief and loss, friendship and social skills, study skills, conflict resolution, emotion management, self-esteem, and stress-management.

Academic and Career Planning

Staff support students in creating and cultivating their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of academic and career management planning skills.  Every year we offer academic and career planning conferences with all fifth grade students and their parents and provide information for the transition to middle school.

Indirect Services

Staff will often advocate on behalf of students which may involve making a referral for additional services or consulting and collaborating with parents, teachers, other educators and community organizations.  Staff also assist families in finding community resources that may benefit their family, including outside mental health counseling.
