Individual Counseling

Friends sitting on a pierThere are a range of options for students looking for individual counseling:

For those who wish to speak confidentially with a fellow student, Peer Support Network provides student members who are trained in basic counseling techniques. Peer Support members are assigned to medical families, and reach out periodically to offer their time and a listening ear. If you are not a part of a medical family, you will receive an email with a list of Peer Support members who are available to contact. If you are unsure who your Peer Support member is, or have any other questions about the program, please email either Jelena MacLeod or Kathy Tian.

For those who want to seek professional guidance, counseling and medication management are provided by our school counselor, Debra Johnson, A.P.R.N. More resources and contact information can be found on the Student Mental Health Service Website.
