LSMSA offers short-term individual and group counseling to students when the need arises. Students see the school's personal counselors to discuss a variety of concerns: time management difficulties, relationship problems, problems at home, anxiety, depression and stress management, just to name a few. Parents/guardians or school staff may refer students for counseling or students may request an appointment. Should it be determined by the personal counselor that more extensive services are necessary, the counselor will work with the family to arrange outside counseling or psychiatric services.
In addition, the personal counseling staff offers wellness programs that help to educate students about mental health.
