It's a crazy world out there with Covid complications, college and career decisions, school and athletic pressures, relationships, jobs, homework and more. The MHS Counseling Team wants to help you "PRESS ON" through what can be a stressful and overwhelming time in life. We will be offering the opportunity for students to sign up for 4-week, counselor led small groups addressing common needs like stress management, future planning, anxiety, and other regularly requested supports. PRESS ON groups will meet in the month of April with the opportunity to participate before school from 7:45-8:15 or after school from 3:30-4:00 for a total of four weekly sessions. Take some time to care for your mental health by signing up to join us here.
