Coping with COVID Challenges
Mercy High School strongly believes that mental health plays a significant role in the success of its students. The school partners with Catholic Charities to provide free therapeutic counseling to students.
With the recognition that COVID-19 is presenting additional coping challenges for all students, a school wide wellness presentation and discussion via Zoom is planned for January 26 from 10:40 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Presenters are Jenna Whitaker, the licensed mental health practitioner who works with Mercy students, and Joan Huss, director of Catholic Charities Behavioral Health Service. They will provide an overview of mental health and coping challenges then open the virtual floor up for questions.
