Health & Counseling

(Kelsey Jones)

Mission Statement

The mission of North Haven Community School’s health and counseling curriculum is to promote whole student wellness. We will work to integrate multiple dimensions of health: mental; emotional; physical and social. By the time our young adults graduate, they will be able to meet the complex challenges and choices they face as they continue to become responsible, independent and healthy community members.

Expressive Arts Therapy & Counseling

What is Expressive Arts Therapy?

Expressive arts therapy is a multimodal approach to therapy. Expressive arts therapy may incorporate writing, drama, dance, movement, mindfulness, visual art exploration, and/or music. People utilizing expressive arts therapy are encouraged by a qualified therapist to explore their responses, reactions, and insights through pictures, sounds, explorations, and encounters with art processes. A person is not required to have artistic ability to use or benefit from expressive arts therapy. (
