School Counsellors

The primary role of the School Counsellor is to:

  • Provide direct counselling support and other intervention services for individual students and groups identified as at-risk and/or experiencing or demonstrating mild to moderate mental health needs.
  • Co-ordinate supports for students with critical needs both within and external to the school, including working proactively with other health professionals to engage further support as required.
  • Enhance promotion and prevention activities in the school by contributing to the whole school health and wellbeing plans, building the capacity of teaching staff and school leadership to manage student health and wellbeing, and helping to embed mental health promotion and prevention programs and strategies in the school.
