COUNSELING SERVICES

Students with poor academic performance, disciplinary issues and truancy may be dealing with a mental health issue such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulty, anger, self- harm, high risk behaviors, etc. One in five teens and young adults experience mental health illness regardless of social status.  The key is awareness and acceptance.  

Misunderstanding mental health leads to discrimination and stigma which affects the student’s willingness to seek help for the issues that he/she is struggling with. Students need to be reassured that it is common for adolescents to experience mental health issues that interfere with the ability to do well in school and that it is “okay” to ask for help.  

A team of trained mental health professionals are available year-round at SHACC for individual and group counseling and resources. Counselors guide students to develop the skills needed to manage the issues and allow them to be successful at school.
