Our school counselors lead small groups comprising of 8-12 students at a time. Small groups can be an effective way of helping a number of students who all need assistance in a similar area. We will send permission slips home with students who would like to participate in a group. Please talk with your counselor if you are interested in joining.
The Stress Less Group is designed to help students gain skills to better manage stress and anxiety. The school counselor facilitating the group will teach you relaxation techniques and skills that will help you to de-stress and reduce anxiety in the short-term.
