Responsive Services

  • Youth and Family Clinic (located in the Woodrow Wilson High School parking lot)
  • Referrals for other emotional family needs.
  • Guidance lessons and counseling groups on important teen issues throughout the year:
    • Suicide
    • Teen dating violence
    • Anti-Victimization
    • Risky Behaviours


Suicide Awareness and Prevention

Over our lifetimes, 80 percent of us will know someone who dies by suicide. . .

The counselors have a Teens Helping Teens handout available for students. This was distributed in 2014 to Woodrow students.

We hope every parent looks at this information and initiates a conversation with their student about how to deal with stress, loneliness etc. in their lives before the pain gets beyond control and the student is at risk for depression and/or suicide. If you need more resources for mental health referrals, please call the counselors at 972.502-4419.
