Personal Responsive Services Prevention, Intervention & Support Resources
The main focus for School Counselors is brief academic, social and emotional support for the school environment. School Counselors are often the first step when students are experiencing difficulty in any area of their life and we are well linked with many resources to support students and families for the longer term. If regular therapy is needed, we can help students/families get in touch with therapy resources and help manage academic load while students work through the personal issues. This section is designed to provide you access to available resources at any time. However, face to face connections and building relationships within our community is vitally important to personal development. . . as a student, teacher, parent, human!
See subject headings below for some of the things we can help with. . .

Individual Counseling/Therapy Organizations These are community options that some of our families have found helpful. AAPS and Huron High School can not recommend specific Counselors or individuals working in these organizations. Finding a Therapist that "FITS" your needs is an individual search. Please know these may be fee-based organizations. Some will accept insurance. You may also contact your insurance company for a list of therapists that they cover.
