Our School Social Worker, Ms. Shannon, helps students work through big feelings and issues that are interfering with their ability to learn. She supports students by listening, facilitating small groups, and mediating friendship issues and conflicts. Ms. Shannon teaches Mind Up to first grade classes and Zones of Regulation to all students.
For ongoing therapy needs, Ms. Shannon can refer families to outside therapy, such as Roseburg Therapy and Looking Glass Therapy, whose counselors can meet with students right here at Chavez. Please contact Ms. Shannon about a therapy referral, or with any other questions.
Another great community resource is OFSN . “We are families and youth working together to promote mental, behavioral and emotional wellness for other families and youth through education, support, and advocacy.”
