At a time when the national spotlight on mental health has never shone brighter, National School Counseling Week is a time to recognize the unique challenges and pressures placed on counselors in the U.S. school system and focus public attention on their hard work and dedication to a difficult yet rewarding profession. 
National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. School counselors are highly educated, professionally certified individuals who help students succeed in school and life, both during their K-12 experience and for years to come. 
As an integral part of the education system, school counselors help students form healthy goals, mindsets and behaviors. With the aid of a school counselor, students learn to develop effective collaboration and cooperation skills, practice perseverance, develop time management and study skills, and learn self-motivation and other constructive habits. Thank you to our D51 counselors!
