Should Your Child Talk to a Counselor? Look for...

  • Loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy
  • Behaving significantly more sullen, irritable, or defiant
  • Neglecting their typical hygiene practices long periods without showering, etc.
  • Displaying unusual tiredness -- sleeping all day, complaining of fatigue, remaining isolated
  • Unexplained stomach discomfort or other physical complaints
  • Frequent tearfulness, beyond what is usual for them
  • Dramatic appetite changes


Talk to your child about suicide

If You Know a Student Who is Struggling:

  • Alert the school counselor or social worker that the student may benefit from extra support
  • Ask if there is a  group or club that may add opportunities for connection, support, and joy
  • Ask if there is an on-site therapist who is accepting new clients
  • Encourage the student to tell a trusted adult when things feel overwhelming
  • Reach out to school administrators, teachers, or counselors for extra problem solving support
