The primary mission of the Counseling Center at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School is to facilitate the maximum development of each student. The services offered are concerned with identity, maturity, problem-solving, conflict resolution, decision making, academic excellence, and college and career choices.
When searching for outside counseling, your first step is to speak with your primary doctor. They will be able to suggest counselors in your area or give you a referralHere is a working document of therapists in our community:
Students may be out of school for a crisis or mental health emergency. If a student is found to be a danger to him/herself or others the counselor will refer the student out for appropriate evaluation. The student will be kept in the counselor's office until a parent or guardian can pick the student up. The student will not be permitted to return to school until they have received an evaluation by a mental health professional. If the result of the evaluation is that the student is no longer a danger to themselves or others then a note, on letterhead, from the evaluating licensed mental health professional must be provided. (It is not sufficient to have a note stating that the student was seen on a particular date.) The counselor will provide a sheet with the details regarding the required note before the student leaves the building. Once the professional letter has been obtained, the student and parent will meet with the Director of School Counseling Services as well as an administrator. At this meeting a plan for the student's well-being going forward will be discussed, the note will be presented, and the counselor will ask the family to sign a release of information permitting the counselor to call to check the progress of the student in relation to the identified issue.
