The following information is directly from PWCS:

Counselors are NOT providing virtual mental health counseling during school closures; counselors are ONLY providing consultation and connecting students/parents to external resources. Parents or parents WITH their child(ren) can schedule a video conference with counselors who may have questions or concerns about resources and recommendations to assist their child(ren) with anxiety and other issues. Please be sure the parent understands this isnot family counseling or individual counseling for their child(ren). This is consultation.
