Counseling includes social skills groups, small groups and individual counseling. We will focus on anger management, bullying, self esteem, relaxation, mindfulness, and overall social skills. I am sending home student information forms and releases so we can update our counseling records and contact you as needed. Please put all current contact information on this form. Watch for notices about our PARENT SUPPORT GROUP.  I have a Mental Health Resource Guide available in the main office, which is currently being updated.. Please let us know if you would like one sent home. 

 

                                                                 

 

 

 

This week in Counseling Groups we focused on How our diet and nutrition affects our physical and mental health. In some classes we worked in booklets titled "We can love good nutrition". In other groups we watched video titled "Food and mood: how diet affects depression". We covered how our mental health is impacted like our physical health if we don't consume the correct foods. We also reviewed the USDA recommended food plate to discuss specific dietary recommendations. Please see choosemyplate.gov for more information.
