There are a number of reasons a therapist would see students such as depression or sad mood, self-harm, anxiety or worry, difficulty adjusting to a change in the family system, grief, behavioral concerns, and other mental health concerns. How to get started:
- Please contact your school counselor in each school regarding your concerns and observations.
- The counselor will send you a referral form.
- Sign the referral form, and return it to the office as soon as possible.
