Counselling and Support

   Prairie Spirit School Division counsellors are available to support students around a variety of needs. School-based counselling is typically short-term counselling focused on issues that impact students during their school day. Counselling is a confidential service. Referrals for counselling may be made by students, parents, or the school team. Ordinarily, counsellors may see a student up to three times before being required to submit a Request for Involvement Form (parental consent).

   If the needs of a student are deemed to require long-term counselling, or involve complex issues, counsellors may work with the students and their families to access community mental health services.
