Wilcox Wellness Program

We’re part of a support network for the Wilcox community, including students, their families, and school staff.

We’re here to promote social-emotional well-being and resilience, which helps students achieve their full potential at school and in life.

Here are some of the services we provide:

  • Meet with parents/guardians or school staff to develop strategies to support students based on their individual circumstances
  • Provide emotional support to parents/guardians and school staff around situations that affect anyone in the school community
  • Collaborate with school staff to provide crisis intervention on campus 
  • Provide information on community resources to help families meet their needs
  • Share mental-health related information with students, parents/guardians, and staff through presentations

 

Mental Health 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.
