What does a school counselor do?
School counselors assist students across a wide range of areas to help them become happy, safe, and healthy young adults. Counselors support students across the academic, personal, and social domains, connect students and parents to outside resources such as other mental health professionals, and collaborate with school faculty and staff to support student success.
