At MECHS, Social Workers and Counselors collaborate to provide individual and group counseling opportunities for students. Based on the perceived and self-reported needs of the students each school year, groups are conducted. Some years we have had many young parents, so parenting groups are indicated. Some years we have offered Mother-To-Be Classes. Anger Management groups and Self-Esteem Groups are other frequent options. Some sites have clubs that not only perform a service but also provide a setting for social skills practice. New Student Groups are offered at all sites on a regular basis to help students with the transition into MECHS.
