Crisis Response

Counsellors assist students who are struggling with challenging issues in their lives by offering crisis response counselling services.

Every student has the right to be supported by a trained professional in the school setting to address immediate personal/emotional needs and concerns of a confidential nature. This might help to resolve difficulties in relationships or normal developmental tasks, or crisis counselling and short-term interventions to help deal with situations that occur suddenly and exhaust normal coping capacity.  The counselling relationship is regarded as confidential.

Crisis Response Counselling services are provided by professionals who have appropriate training and expertise.  These professionals include a divisional Registered Psychologist, Guidance Counsellors and Family School Liaisons (FSLs).
