SPS Counseling

  • MENTAL HEALTH
    Stillwater Public Schools is committed to providing our students with excellent counseling services to address their mental health needs. Supplementing our team of counselors,  embedded DHS staff and Grand Lakes Mental Health professionals help make sure our students are receiving the help they need and working to make our schools happier, healthier and safer. 

    TRAUMA INFORMED APPROACHES
    Oklahoma students have a high number of adverse childhood experiences, and we’re addressing that in our community. Recent work includes the addition of counselors across the district, including substance abuse counseling, professional development training from Dr. Barbara Sorrels, Executive Director of The Institute for Childhood Education, and enhancements to our Family Support Services. Our community is strongly engaged in these efforts through partnerships with local organizations, including a food pantry at our alternative academy, and generous donations to charitable drives supporting our students.
     
    ENROLLMENT
    In addition to meeting the mental and behavioral health needs of our students, SPS counselors work with our students to help schedule their courses and explore career options.
