National School Counseling Week (Feb. 7-11)

February 7-11th is National School Counseling Week! A national holiday that always takes place the first week of February to take the time to recognize and appreciate the hard work and dedication of school counselors. This year’s theme is ‘Better Together’ recognizing that schools are more effective and efficient in providing students a well-rounded educational experience when staff works together as one.

What is the role of a school counselor?

School counselors offer a variety of services intended to improve student wellness, academic performance, and future career or educational paths. For many students, a school counselor is a free resource that offers a safe place to disclose, process, and work through current and future trials and successes. These individuals are one of the first lines of defense to ensure the safety of students both inside and outside of school. They are an incredible resource that should be utilized for their expansive knowledge and all around encouragement.

To stick with this year’s theme of ‘Better Together’, School counselors and Lifeologie Oak Cliff are better together because counseling works best when there is collaboration. When more counselors come together to help individuals and advocate for mental health, we see that there is a better therapeutic outcome and a stronger community. We are both passionate about helping adolescents and getting them to a place where they are equipped to handle what is in front of them and what is to come.

To school counselors- thank you for all you do in ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of every student. You are such a necessary and helpful role in the school system and in the community.
