Welcome to the Wellness Center!
The GWHS Wellness Center is a comprehensive center available on campus in room 121 for students and the school community. You can come to us for any reason possible including: condoms, band aids, jobs, counseling, resting, nutrition questions, and more! We provide education and resources about various health topics such as: safe sex, alcohol and other drug use, depression, stress management, nutrition, family problems, and other important issues.
Our team consists of the Wellness Coordinator, Nurse, Community Health Outreach Worker, and RAMS therapists. In addition, we have several trained counseling and nursing interns that support our services. We also have a dynamic group of students called, Youth Outreach Workers (YOWs), that help represent Wellness services by leading classroom presentations and various interactive health promotion events throughout the school year.
Our services are free, voluntary, and confidential. Everything that happens in the Wellness Center, stays in the Wellness Center (unless there are concerns about your safety and well-being). Please stop by, and visit us!
UPDATE- NEW ONLINE REFERRAL FORMS !
Our services are voluntary and confidential, which means students decide if they would like to access services, and we don't share personal student information unless there are concerns for their safety and well-being. Often, for more serious or long-term services, we will connect students with providers in the community or through their health insurance plan.
