My Students

My students range from Kindergarten to 5th grade in a public, elementary school setting. I work with all grades as the Mental Health Practitioner. My kids come to school with mental health needs that need supporting. My role as the MHP is to support these needs through any means necessary. In my role, I work with kids through individual and group counseling, as well as supporting their teachers and classroom settings.

I want my office to be a welcoming place for my students.

A place for them to feel safe and cared for, and I hope that this project will help me do just that!

My Project

Each and every day we see even more reasons to support the mental health needs of students in our schools. We, as Mental Health Practitioners, are working to support these needs in addition to all other adults in the buildings. The comfy pillows and stress relief goodies will allow my counseling office to be a safe and welcoming place for my students to relax and refocus. The Play-Doh and blocks will give my students a means to open up to counseling and any help they may need to make them more successful in school. Help me counsel my kiddos!
