LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe School Corporation counselors gathered up counselors in the surrounding area together with one mission in mind. The goal was to make sure they are all properly stacked with local tools they can use for this upcoming school year.
TSC hosted the first Mental Health Roundtable discussion. Counselors were able to hear and talk to mental health service providers about how they can help the students they serve. The hope is that this partnership will help students have a successful school year.
McCutcheon High School Counselor Megan Ulrich said it's a lot harder to learn when you have a crisis or other problems on your mind.
"Maybe it wasn't all the same stuff as when we were in school, but we have to make sure we stay up to date on that and know where to direct the families and what kind of advice to give them also," said Ulrich.
This gives the conselors a chance to see what resources are available outside of school.
"It's hard to go ahead and attend to things like math, two plus two equals four if you're worried about things at home if you're worried about where you're going to sleep at night," said Pamela Mccombs, Director of Wabash Valley Alliance Child and Adolescent Branch
The goal is to have the roundtable discussion each year with more resources from the community.
