Our Approach

  • Counseling Counts uses a two-tiered approach to meeting its mission


    Tier 1

  • Change Counselor Time Usage


    By having a coordinator whose role will be to align resources and access to
    community resources, counselors will be able to focus more on face-to-face time with the students in areas of
    counseling and guidance.

  • Identify students earlier with personal/social issues

    Ensure students with mental health needs are identified, and all students are socially and emotionally healthy to
    achieve academic, college, and career success.

  • Develop a Community/School Based “Wrap Around” Services System

    Align with community resources to increase access, remove barriers for students and eliminate mental health
    stigmas by creating a cross-sector continuum of mental health services and empowers students to discuss their mental
    health issues and eliminates the stigma around such conversations.
