Hoover Counseling Department

Dear Hoover Families,

We know that being home from school and practicing social distancing can be difficult for families. Also, we are all worried about the COVID-19 virus and what it means for our community. This worry is not only felt by adults; children and teens know something is going on, they are also watching the news. Frequently they get information from untrustworthy and sensational news sources. Please talk to your student(s) about what they are hearing and seeing to help them make good informed decisions and to help with anxiety.

Below are some links from the APS counseling department for resources to help your family during this time. We have also included some tabs with mindfulness exercises and some exercises you can do when you or your student are feeling anxious.

Good luck and good mental health!

During this time they are up and running to help support you and your family. They are a great resource when there is no counseling help available, especially in crisis situations.
