• Break Free From Depression
    Learn How We're Addressing Mental Health with Our Students
    All teens face emotional and psychological challenges as they grow into young adults. A great deal of their behavior, thoughts, and feelings are a normal part of this major developmental transition. Yet, students' responses to these challenges can vary from disabling disorders and transient problems to amazing resilience. Studies have shown there is a strong connection between emotional health and academic progress. Students who are battling with emotional issues cannot learn as well as students who are happy, healthy, and able to devote their full attention to their coursework. Therefore, addressing our students' social and emotional needs throughout this exciting and challenging time of their lives is an important part of the programming at BVT.
    Our school counselors will address important mental health topics, such as stress, anxiety, depression, and suicide with our student body in the following ways:
