• The Mountain Brook High School Natural Helpers club is an organization for students who would like to improve their listening skills. The program’s intent is to improve the health and well being of young people through education, peer listening, and referral. Members represent a cross-section of students with whom others feel comfortable discussing personal issues.  Many students report that they were already being sought out by their peers to discuss personal problems.  There are no academic requirements for membership; participation is encouraged from all aspects of the student body.
    Natural Helpers are not professionally trained therapists, nor are they expected to act as counselors.  Members are encouraged to consult with parents and other responsible adults on a regular basis and are required to inform sponsors of any life-threatening and/or emergency situations they may encounter.
