Mental health and counselling supports

School counsellors provide ongoing counselling services, respond to crisis situations and promote good mental well-being generally.

Access to school counselling significantly reduces student anxiety and depression and has been connected to decreases in student behaviour problems and incidents of bullying.

School counsellors have received additional professional development or graduate-level training that prepares them to support students’ personal, social, educational and career development, as well as promote students’ mental health and well-being.
