    The School Counselor and Mental Health*

    Students’ unmet mental health needs pose barriers to learning and development. Because of school counselors’ training and position, they are uniquely qualified to provide education, prevention, intervention and referral services to students and their families. Although school counselors do not provide long-term mental health therapy in schools, they provide a comprehensive school counseling program designed to meet the developmental needs of all students. As a component of this program, school counselors collaborate with other educational professionals and community service providers. 

     

    If you have any questions or concerns with your child please contact Mr. Bell or Mrs. Roberts at 843-572-0313.

    We are here to partner with you to ensure your child is as healthy and successful as possible!

    DNLCC is a community- based, 501(c)(3) non-profit Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) that provides coordinated services for victimized children and their families. Since 1991, DNLCC has helped over 18,000 children and their families. At DNLCC, we know how important it is for at-risk children to be believed and protected. As adults, it is our responsibility to protect children from abuse and to take action if abuse has already occurred. Our trained staff will make sure the child receives the help that they need to stay safe and heal from the trauma of abuse. Children can’t protect themselves, so let DNLCC give them the help they need.
