Fairview High School

Personal-Social Counseling and Wellness

The counseling department's goal is that students will feel comfortable approaching us about anything. We are trained in personal/social and crisis counseling, and it is our job to help stabilize students who encounter a difficult situation while at school. We hope students know we are always here to listen without forming judgment, and help students problem solve. Additionally, we have a plethora of community resources to provide to students and families should they feel it is appropriate to seek outside support.
