Military & Family Life Counseling

A Warm WELCome to Our military Families!

About the Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program

Tate High School is pleased to offer non-medical counseling to our military affiliated students. Our Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC) has helped students with a variety of challenges, including school adjustment, deployment and separation, academics, communication, behavioral concerns, and stress management. Non-medical counseling sessions are free and confidential (no records are kept).

 

What is the counselor’s role in the school?

Counselors will provide care that augments the support services already in place at each school. Counselors take part in everyday school activities and events and help with deployment and reintegration, family dynamics, positive coping mechanisms, staff support and education, parent education and stress reduction. Counselors are also available to facilitate groups and trainings to build leadership skills, manage anger, build self-esteem and confidence and strengthen communication.

 

Why are the counselors in certain schools and not others?

Schools were selected to receive MFLCs based on their percentage of military connected students.

 

Do counselors keep records about students and families?

No. Services provided by counselors are private and confidential with the exception of mandatory federal and military reporting requirements (i.e., child abuse, domestic violence and other life-threatening situations). No counseling records are maintained.
