Message of Support for Trans Youth and Resources
In light of recent national events concerning health care for trans youth, the counseling team and mental health provider at Inglemoor want to express our concern and care for trans students at IHS. We know that trans youth frequently experience exclusion, lack of representation, and concerns over physical safety, and that these challenges are often serious obstacles to mental/emotional well-being. The counseling staff at IHS is committed to supporting our trans students. Please reach out to counseling staff if you are concerned for any student facing these challenges.
How Counselors will be Utilizing their Time During This Closure?
Will Counselors be Hosting Mental Health Conferences?
Due to liability and legal concerns counselors will not be able to accommodate some of our regular meetings with students surrounding topics of mental health and safety. Students who have been working with our mental health counselor, Caleb Visser, have been contacted to move their appointments to Caleb’s office at Northshore Youth and Family Services.
