Mental Wellness Resources & Information


    - Keep in touch with your school counselor regarding any life issues for which you need support. Reaching out for help is a sign of STRENGTH.

    Taking care of yourself means being emotionally healthy too. Talking to your school counselor is a great way to keep yourself from getting overwhelmed by the demands in your life. School counselors have resources to help you. Sometimes, students need to see a therapist for additional mental health support. When they do, therapists can meet with them at school, at home or in offices. School counselors work with school staff to maintain confidentiality when students meet with therapists at school.


    Paulding County School District staff are trained in suicide prevention. If you are having suicidal thoughts or are worried about a friend, tell a trusted adult or contact a crisis line.
