Workshops & Group Counseling
The MRHS Counseling Team, in conjunction with our Behavioral Health Therapist and School Social Worker, are hosting virtual workshops on Fridays to provide students with a safe space to share emotions and experiences and learn from one another. Friday workshops provide an opportunity to gain interpersonal skills, process feelings, and more. Friday Zoom Groups are open for all students, and are "process oriented," meaning there will be an opportunity for students who attend to share and learn from each other. We will be there to facilitate the conversation and provide resources.
Demystifying Mental Health: The counseling team hosted a session for students to better understand various aspects of Mental Health. Topics of discussion included common mental health disorders, other factors impacting students' mental health in 2021, the importance of good sleep habits and healthy coping mechanisms, as well as a brief Q&A.
