Who are School Psychologists?

School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. They help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school. 

Growing up is not easy ..... 

All children and adolescents face problems from time to time. They may: 
> Feel afraid to go to school 
> Have difficulty organizing their time 
> Lack effective study skills 
> Fall behind in their school work 
> Lack self-discipline 
> Worry about family matters such as force and death 
> Feel depressed or anxious 
> Experiment with drugs or alcohol 
> Think about suicide 
> Worry about their sexuality 
> Face difficult situations, such as applying to college, getting 
a job, or quitting school 
> Question their aptitudes and abilities.

It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day-to-day basis.
