Pattonville’s counseling staff created a website dedicated to mental health and wellness to provide resources and support students, staff and family members through the stress and anxiety brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We know a healthy mind and body influences your stress levels and your ability to deal with stress,” said Michael Boulanger, counselor for the Positive School and alternative programs at Pattonville High School. Boulanger created the website with input and suggestions from other counselors in the district.
