    MBJH Counseling Department Overview

     
    The School Counseling program addresses the needs of each student by helping him or her to acquire competencies in the areas of knowledge and respect of self and others, academic growth, and college/career exploration and planning. Counselors are available to all students by appointment or on a walk-in basis.  Parents are urged to make an appointment to avoid waiting for service. Counselors are assigned by graduating class, allowing the counselors to build deeper relationships with students and their families over the course of their 3 years at the Junior High.
     
     
    Confidentiality
    Conversations with a counselor are typically confidential with the exception of situations in which the student has authorized the counselor to speak to someone else.  In addition, there are a number of urgent situations which limit confidentiality: 
    •    Threat of harm to oneself
    •    Threat of harm to another
    •    Any report of abuse or neglect or suspected abuse or neglect
    •    Reports of behavior which could reasonably lead to harm to self or others
    •    Court orders requiring disclosure
