What Do We Do?
As part of a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Grant, we are able to offer school-based Mental Health Counseling to assist with times of transition, deployment, and social and emotional concerns. Our goal is to provide a blanket of wrap-around support for both military– and non–military-connected students and their families through initiatives like the Student 2 Student (S2S) Program (a student ambassador program designed to help integrate new students into the culture of the school via a buddy system), as well as student peer groups, family groups, and school-based mental health counseling.
