Personal Counseling:  School-based mental health counseling is coordinated by the Wellness Center at Wilcox. The goal is to address social-emotional issues that are interfering with a student’s ability to succeed in school. Parents/guardians and school staff may refer a student whom they are concerned about. Students may seek support for themselves or express concern about their peers. Parent permission is not required for brief check-ins. Written parent permission is required for students under age 18 to receive ongoing mental health counseling. The Wellness Program can also assist students and families who wish to receive counseling services outside of school.
