Mental Health Counselor

There is one fact—there is clear evidence linking mental health with educational achievement. Social/emotional health problems can create significant barriers to academic success. When academics can be at the top of a student’s list of priorities, students have a greater opportunity to reach their potential. Our focus is to allow students to make academics their top priority while maintaining their social/emotional health and limiting barriers to achieving success.
