As mental health concerns in Australia reach record numbers, the role of schools has become increasingly important. Parents and communities entrust schools to work with them to manage these problems with compassion, knowledge and expertise.
School counsellors are able to identify and manage mental health problems and ensure optimal student support is provided.
Counselling support at Hillbrook may involve:
- assessing students
- meeting with parents
- liaising with teachers
- when requested speaking to health professionals
- monitoring at risk students
- providing individual conselling sessions
- maintaining confidential and sensitive information.
Just like children, emotions heal when they are heard and validated.
