Student Assistance Program/Region 10 support

What is the Student Assistance Program (SAP)?

A Student Assistance Program (SAP) is an on-site counselor from Region 10 who identifies and assists students experiencing personal stressors that can impede their school performance, and negatively impact their social and emotional well-being. The SAP works with students who are dealing with a variety of personal issues, including those related to alcohol and other drugs, depression, anxiety, academic issues, family and friend stressors to name a few. Once a student is referred to the SAP, the counselor will meet with the student for an assessment. The counselor then refers the student to other services in the school or community; or the SAP counselor will provide brief counseling to address specific issues.
