School counselors reaching students on mental health

With the ongoing pandemic, Powell said students needed help with depression and anxiety. Counselor Michelle Powell said the school’s counseling staff has seen an uptick in students needing services. “They have so much that they’re thinking about other than just grades and attendance, and they’re having everything to deal with with the pandemic as far as COVID and helping out their families and things like that,” she said.

“It was a little difficult mentally because I had the goal of being the salutatorian, and so I was like, ‘This is my senior year. This can make or break my chances,” Johnson said. Johnson said she’s a visual learner, but because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, she had to adjust how to learning remotely instead of in-person learning.

She said the pressure was on, but she wasn’t alone. “I get a little bit distracted, being at home, and a little too comfortable, probably,” said West Oso High School senior Ta’Leigha Johnson. “So that was an adjustment as well.”

“And our students, you know, keep pushing forward no matter what,” Powell said. “One day at a time, you can do it.” Source West Oso High School has what’s called “power hour,” where students can meet with counselors during lunch and discuss what all is going on mentally, along with what students want to pursue in the future.

“I would just have to take little mental breaks,” she said. “I would go to the park with my friends. We would paint or have little picnics.” However, the young salutatorian said she found ways to stay motivated mentally.
