“In my thirty years working in high schools, I have seen an alarming increase in students struggling with mental health, particularly anxiety and depression. Students around the world are dealing with a great deal: pandemic, social media, climate change, political turmoil and division on top of the regular stresses of the teenage years.”
New Health and Wellness Center
The new Health and Wellness Center will consist of a newly constructed 3,600 square foot building connected to a complete renovation of our existing health center. Construction will be done in two phases to allow for the least amount of disruption to our health services, and together the new center will include three faculty apartments with room for a fourth. We plan to start construction on the new facility (Phase 1) as soon as the funding is in hand.
Phase 2 will move the nursing services into the new building while we renovate the existing building, creating a new wellness center for adolescent counseling and mental health programming. As illustrated, both facilities expand the number of treatment spaces and the variety of spaces to simultaneously accommodate private treatment, ill students, daily counseling, telehealth services, wellness meetings, and medication disbursement, all with improved privacy and a welcoming atmosphere. Finally, both buildings will be surrounded by an expanded green space with outdoor wellness activities such as basketball, climbing boulder, and sitting areas.
