Health & Wellness

Attending high school today can be a stressful, anxiety driven experience. UHS understands that students need to have ‘peace-of-mind’ so they can focus on their academics and the responsibilities associated with high school. That is why UHS employs social-emotional counselors just to assist students who may need a little extra help. The resources on this page are all designed to assist students with the social-emotional aspects of their lives although students and parents are always free to call Mrs. Bird (278-0449) or Mrs. Carvalho (278-1115) with any questions.

Our counselors are available to all students and can be accessed in multiple ways:

  • Students and or parents may request to meet with their counselor by either walk-in or by appointment, to discuss any personal, social, emotional and behavioral issues that the individual is experiencing.
  • Teachers may refer students when they identify the student’s learning is being impacted by academic, personal, social, emotional or behavioral issues.
  • A Student Support Team (SST) may recommend that a student receive short-term counseling or frequent check-in as part of the student's plan of action.
  • Counselor may initiate meetings with students based on feedback received from other students, parents, teachers, or school administrators, or during particular times of the academic year (i.e., grading periods).

When needed, Mrs. Bird or Mrs. Carvalho may refer students and their families to private professionals in the community for psycho-educational testing and assessment, psychological or psychiatric evaluation, and long-term counseling. The following are some of the community resources available to UHS students and parents.
