CoVitality Mental Health Survey

Parents,

 

All 5th, 7th, and 10th graders in San Rafael City Schools will be taking a mental health, wellness, and school climate survey during the month of October. This survey is designed to help our schools recognize school wide strengths and areas to address; as well as identify any students that might at-risk for psychological distress (depression, anxiety, low self-concept, etc.). For more information on CoVitality, please visit http://www.project-covitality.info/. 

 

You will be receiving a letter this week with more information about the survey. Should you determine that you do not want you students to take part in the survey, please return the letter to your child's teacher or the front office.

 

Questions? Please call of e-mail Meghan Greenwood at 415-485-2400 or mgreenwood@srcs.org. For a copy of the letter, you can visit: https://sv-srcs-ca.schoolloop.com/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1285482187430&group_id=1285482082384&no_controls=t 

 

School Counseling: The Basics

School counselors help students in three domains: academic achievement, personal/social development, and career development.

​Counselors work directly with students in guidance curriculum lessons, individual planning sessions, and in responsive services (such as seeing students individually and in groups).

Counselors also provide system support; consulting with teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders to develop, implement, and evaluate school wide goals.

 

I work with students on a range of issues from school work to classroom behavioral concerns to social relationships such as navigating friendships and bullying to emotional hurdles that make focusing on school challenging. It is appropriate for a school counselor to work with a child if something is going on in their life that is directly affecting their schoolwork or experience on campus.  

School counseling is built on a wellness model of mental health. Most issues facing children and young adults are developmental in nature; having a school counselor who understands normal human growth and development is paramount to designing interventions that promote wellness. The goal of counseling is ultimately to empower each student to identify and successfully resolve problems autonomously as they grow into adults.
