What is Student Assistance Counseling?

  • Student Assistance Counseling is a process where you can meet with the SAC and discuss any problem that you are dealing with. A variety of topics can be explored such as:

    • Bullying
    • Cutting and self-mutilation
    • Drugs and Alcohol
    • Depression
    • Eating disorders
    • Family Problems
    • Relationship Issues (friends, dating, etc.)
    • Suicide
    • Stress
    • School-related problems
    • Any other issues

    The student and the SAC can explore issues and work together to develop healthy and effective coping strategies. Student can come down and request to meet with the SAC at any time. Please let the secretaries in the guidance office know that you would like to meet. You can expect that what you talk about with the SAC remains confidential. Unless you are being abused, or there is immediate danger to yourself or others, what you talk about with the SAC stays private.
