Arizona students and teachers ask for more mental health resources on campus

“I am in correspondence through email, Webex, talking students through emotional meltdowns every week. It is hard to witness that as an educator,” says teacher Elise Villescaz. They say something needs to be done. Her students are struggling as they try and keep up with online learning without the emotional connection.

A number of students and teachers around the Valley voiced their concerns on April 19, and one message was clear, they are all struggling. Now, time is showing us that the mental health of this group is also declining as they try to keep up.

School counselors’ offices are full and now teachers and students are working to step in as counselors themselves although they aren’t trained for that kind of interaction. PHOENIX – It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on students and teachers as they’ve had to pivot to online learning, then head back into classrooms a year later.

Adrianna Parrino, a student at Arete Preparatory Academy, is seeing an increase in her classmate’s struggling and requesting help from school counselors. “Everyone’s mental health suffering. You have to wait a week to two weeks in advance to talk to someone about mental health. It is concerning,” she says. Eman Massoud, a student at Gilbert Classical Academy, feels the same, saying, “I was struggling. I needed that student to teacher connection.”

“You can FaceTime and hop on Zoom calls, but it is not the same. You can’t reach people on the same level,”  says Dylan Lifshitz, senior at Sunnyslope High School. High school students in Gilbert and Phoenix are echoing those emotions.
