On Campus Support
We have a variety of resources and supports on campus that can help provide you with clarity for any questions you may have, or can provide you with therapy and support if you are struggling, or if you just need someone to talk to. Lauren Thomas, who is our School Social Worker, Eleanore Denegre and Kaylee Hunt, who are our Friends of Youth Mental Health Counselors) are three staff members at Mount Si located in the counseling center that specialize in trauma therapy and mental health.
You can set up an appointment to meet with them by either emailing them, or walking down to the counseling center and setting up an appointment. If you don’t know where to start, you can always reach out to your school counselor and they can get you connected.
In addition to these three individuals, you can also meet with any of our amazing school counselors for any additional support you may need.

Teachers are your number one resource. Every single one of your teachers have chosen to pursue a career in education because they are passionate about teaching and believe in students. Additionally, staff are trained on connecting you with the adults and resources you may need.
Here are some of the easiest & best ways to have a good relationship with your teacher:
- Say Hi on your way into class
- At appropriate times, ask your teachers questions and talk about your life
- Say Thank You to your teachers after class
Also, teachers can be a safe person to talk to. If you’re comfortable and need support from an adult, please talk to your teachers. Just know that teachers are mandatory reporters meaning if they think you are in danger of hurting yourself or others, or in danger of being hurt; they must report it.
Teachers are also willing to work with you, and part of navigating high school is about advocating for yourself. Don’t hesitate to ask teachers to work out a plan for you if you’re sick, on vacation, falling behind, or have missing assignments. Most teachers are willing to make accommodations and meet you in the middle, if you’re willing to ask.
The career center at school has many resources including help in post-secondary education or work, volunteer and job opportunities, and general resources on how to be successful in and out of the classroom. Be sure to check out their webpage weekly about the different armed forces, universities and other career opportunities happening around Mount Si!
