Counseling and Wellness Office

    Our mission is to support the interconnectedness of the mind, body and soul. The Mater Christi Wellness Center aims to support students holistically while nurturing all aspects of their lives including: spirituality, relationships, physical health, and personal values.

    We seek to accomplish this goal through the following:

    • Wellness instruction throughout the school 
    • Group work 
    • Referrals to MCS spiritual counselor
    • Integration of mental health supports through collaboration with art, music, and biblio specialists at MCS
    • Mentoring for mental health — self-esteem building for students through supporting MCS community (acknowledge gifts and provide support to others) 
    • Screening for emotional or behavioral concerns 
    • Consultation with parents regarding family/child’s needs 
    • Referrals to mental health providers in the community or MCS school therapist
    • Coordination of care within the school for students working with a mental health provider outside of the school 
    • Short term individual counseling, temporary service aimed at skill building and education to learn coping skills for relief
    • In addition to counseling services, clinical mental health consultation is available on a limited basis through the MCS wellness center with our school based clinician
