The goal is to bring mental health services to a convenient, accessible, and familiar environment. While mental health services are provided in your student’s school, privacy is strongly maintained.
The Student Wellness Counselors are available to provide individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, crisis support and educational presentations for families and teachers. The Student Wellness Counselor uses a holistic approach to work collaboratively with the education team to help support the students overall academic success.
Untreated behavioral and emotional needs form barriers to learning for students, and, if untreated, can impact the entire classroom and family. The Integrated School-Based Student Wellness Service was started in response to discussions with Millard Public High School Principals and Administrators regarding the mental health and social/emotional needs of students and families.
How to Access Services
Referrals for a student to begin seeing a Student Wellness Counselor in the school can be made by a student, family care giver, case worker, school administrator, school guidance counselor or teacher. All referrals will be directed to the school social worker. Once permission from a parent or legal guardian has been completed, the student can begin mental health services.
