September 2021 Newsletter
A note from our Executive Director
New Year and New Skills
September always feels new – new school year, new season, fresh starts and lots of promise. For many of us, we’ve had to help our children adjust to the start of school in still-uncertain times.
Across the country, healthcare facilities have witnessed increased anxiety and mental health crises in children. Nationwide, organizations have been working on ways to help find productive coping mechanisms that relieve some of their worries.
In August, The Family Counseling Center’s Facebook page shared links to resources offering help to parents as they navigate the new school year. Our dedicated team continues to work with children and their families in session and in school settings.
This issue focuses on our dedicated Children & Family Services team and the work they’ve done to help alleviate some of the anxiety families and individuals have encountered over the last year.
As always, The Family Counseling Center is thankful to our community, our partners, our staff, and you for your support throughout the past year. Your advocacy and donations help us greatly as we continue to fulfill our mission of providing superior care.

Across the nation, healthcare professionals have seen an increase in anxiety, depression, and fear from children over the course of the pandemic. The Family Counseling Center has recognized a heightened mix of feelings from children in advance of the new school year and is offering some advice for area parents.
