Social Work Services
Individual clinical services are provided for students throughout Lakehead Public Schools elementary and high schools. Our model focuses on brief, solution-focused problem-solving methods to help promote resilience and coping with the goal of enhancing social-emotional learning skills and success in the classroom. Our Westgate Highschool social workers are contracted through Children’s Centre Thunder Bay. Referred students are provided with approximately 5 sessions of individual counselling with a registered social worker at the school. If high school students are interested in a referral to school social work, they may complete a referral by visiting student services.
