Free Virtual Mental Wellness Consultations During Summer 2024

June 10, 2024

This summer, the FCPS Office of Intervention and Prevention Services will offer free virtual Mental Wellness Consultations from June 24, 2024 through August 2, 2024. Any FCPS parent or secondary student will have an opportunity to schedule a 45-minute consultation with a school psychologist or school social worker by phone or videoconference. 

Consultations will be offered in two ways:

  1. Directly to parents of students in any grade level. This consultation provides an opportunity for parents to receive guidance on how to support their child’s social, emotional, and academic success. Information about community resources will also be provided.
  2. Directly to students in middle or high school. This consultation provides an opportunity for middle and high school students to receive guidance and support for concerns related to anxiety, mood, behavior, peer or family interactions, or school transitions and changes. Strategies and tools can also be provided to address academic challenges such as organization and time-management.

We encourage all families to take advantage of this service. 

To request a consultation, families can complete the consultation request form or leave a message at 703-503-2520

Families will be contacted at the start of the session requested in order to schedule a date and time for the consultation appointment. Enjoy your summer.
