Welcome back for a wonderful school year here at Akins! I am excited to be your Social Worker and wanted to inform you about all of the Student Support Services (SSS) activities we offer here on campus.
We have amazing interns from the UT- School of Social Work that intern here as a part of their Master's program. They will be here throughout the school year and on varies days throughout the week.
Student Support Services offers support and services to students at Akins. That support can be individual counseling services for support during a time of crisis or ongoing support when needed. We offer group services and connection to resources in the community.
We have groups on topics including but not limited to: Anger Management, Emotions Management (helpful in discovering ways to better cope with emotions like depression or anxiety), Girls Empowerment, Healthy Relationships, LGBTQ Support, Pregnancy and Parenting Support, and a Grief & Loss Support Group.
We can assist with students needing clothing resources, backpacks and school supplies, shelter options, and access to mental health services in the community.
Basically, we do and will do anything to help our Akins students be successful here and in life!
