Counseling In Schools
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it a mental health crisis, affecting our children, teens and their families in numerous ways: socially, emotionally and academically. Many students are reeling from the uncertainty in the world and some from the loss of loved ones. Many students have felt disconnected, overwhelmed, anxious and depressed. Children and teens are lagging academically and socially after being isolated for such an extended period. The effects of the pandemic will be felt for some time and students will require significant support to see them through. Teachers and administration at many schools are struggling to meet the emotional needs of their students. Cope With School NYC counseling in schools services can support your NYC school community in a number of ways.

We will be present and visible in the school as a resource for students and teachers to come to for support.
