School Mental Health

 
The school mental health team is comprised of licensed social workers and mental health counselors. We provide individual and group counseling as mandated by the student's IEP.
In addition, we facilitate conflict resolution and character education programs within the classroom on a weekly basis. Short-term groups that address the issues of the moment are created regularly i.e. socialization groups at all grade levels, Ushers groups, FLTC (foreign language transition class) groups, bullying groups, sexual harassment groups etc.
We work with families to secure their entitlements; consulting with educational departments on a weekly basis - integrating the mission of the school with the mission of the mental health team: Empower students to become effective and motivated learners.
