Counseling & Mental Health Support

School counseling and mental health support are essential services that help students cope with various challenges they may face. School counselors play a crucial role in providing students with the necessary tools and resources to navigate academic, personal, and social issues. NCISD School Counselors, District Crisis Intervention Counselors, and our Community Mental Health partners are available and ready to support our students and families.

Accessing Counselors

School counselors will be available to meet with students and take appointments during normal operating hours.  Counselors can be contacted by email or phone. You can find contact information for your school counselor on your campus website.

At Risk Counselor Specialist

Parents/Guardians can contact the district At-Risk Counselor Specialist during normal operating hours for community and mental health resources. The At-Risk Counselor Specialist service area is district-wide. For assistance, please contact ARCS via email.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources

We know that how a person thinks, or their mindset, is a powerful determinant of the quality of life they experience. Competency in social-emotional skills is particularly beneficial in these uncertain times. To assist students and families in developing optimal mindsets, weekly SEL lessons are available in the CORE Connections course in Canvas. School counselors are available to assist students and families with lesson facilitation. In addition to the weekly lessons, supplemental Social Emotional Well-Being Activities are available in the Counselor Support Canvas course.

District Crisis Intervention Counselor

Parents/guardians can reach out to the district crisis intervention counselor during normal operating hours for additional mental health and/or family support.
