Student Assistance Counselors

The Student Assistance Program provides a support system for students and families when social, emotional or mental health issues affect a student's school experience, including those related to alcohol and drugs, depression, anxiety, family and friend issues, and other stressors.

Student Assistance Counselors provide confidential counseling, and help students and their families find appropriate community resources, such as rehabilitation and treatment facilities, when required.

Students may see a Student Assistance Counselor for help with personal issues, and parents or teachers may contact a Student Assistance Counselor if they have concerns about a student's well-being.

Referrals to the Student Assistance Program can be made by the students themselves, staff, parents or other concerned individuals and should be directed to one of the Student Assistance Counselors listed on the right side of this webpage.
