Anxiety & Depression Support Groups
Many of our students experience emotional ups and downs throughout their high school years. Research indicates that students with solid self-awareness and good coping skills do better academically and socially during high school and beyond.
This year our school is working with TRAILS (Transforming Research into Action to Improve the Lives of Students) to support our students’ social, emotional, and behavioral health. We will be offering a skills group for students experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression.
If you are interested in this group, please read this letter for details and return the attached permission slip.
