Support Services

Health, Counseling and Wellness

Goals of the Health Program

The Support Services Team provides services to students, faculty and the Bishop's community to facilitate self-understanding and to develop interpersonal relationships and problem-solving and decision-making skills. The team offers consulting, developmental guidance and referrals as necessary. Our purpose is to assist students to grow personally, socially, emotionally and academically.

Counseling

Counseling is available as a source of support for students on campus. The counselor is available to talk to any and all students during the school day. When necessary and appropriate, the counselor will provide resources for continued care outside of school.  
 

The Peer Support Program

The Peer Support Program's mission is to promote positive communication that contributes to a connected and supportive community environment. The Peer Support Team uses strong interpersonal skills, group facilitation, conflict mediation, and communication and mentoring skills to serve as a student support resource for the Bishop's community. Working under the supervision of the school counselor, volunteer students create, organize and lead presentations for both Middle and Upper School students. They are also leaders trained in a variety of areas including diversity, stereotypes/assumptions and appropriate role modeling behavior.

Peer Support is an elective, non-academic, pass/no pass course that meets period X, two days per week for the entire school year. Students earn one semester of credit for the year.
