The aim of our work is to provide confidential and non-judgmental support to students and their families with the objective of enhancing the students well-being, social development, and future potential.
The fully qualified officers are assigned to every post-primary school in counties Sligo & Leitrim, where they provide guidance and support to students that have referred to the service through the school management, teachers, parents/guardians, or other relevant agencies. We provide a link between the family, school, and other relevant statutory agencies. All officers are members of the school pastoral care teams.
The officers provide a safe space for students within their school to talk about any concerns, issues or worries that they may be experiencing. i.e., school challenges, relationships, and anxiety/mental health difficulties.
As well as providing one-to-one support, we also deliver many group programmes in schools as required through consultation with the school management team.
