At times life can present many hardships and difficult situations for students, families and our staff at WCS. Sometimes we can "handle" them and sometimes these problems can have lasting effects on school or work performance, personal relationships and physical health. Without the proper assistance, these problems can become worse and lead to failing grades, absenteeism, poor work performance and strained interpersonal relationships.
WCS has partnered with the Bowen Center to offer an assistance program for all WCS students and employees. Students are offered two prepaid sessions and employees receive four prepaid sessions. These sessions include evaluations, assessments, counseling and any necessary treatment referrals. All services are confidential so you can seek assistance without worry.
The very first Core Value of Warsaw Community School system’s mission statement is “Everyone has Value.” If you are struggling and hurting, remember that you are important and there is help for you. You can call the Bowen Center directly at 1-800-342-5653 or speak with a counselor or nurse at your school and they can help get assistance for you.
