Local Resources

Resources are available right in your child’s very own school. If your child is having a hard time, school counselors are specialized in your child’s age group. You may make an appointment with your school’s counselor by contacting the front office. Many schools have wellness centers and other systems in place to provide support for their students. The counselors can also provide additional information about local resources that may be available.
