Counseling Office

As we navigate this difficult time in which so many individuals and communities are being impacted by COVID-19, Granada Hills Charter is committed to supporting our community in a variety of ways. We are fortunate to have a team of experienced school counselors, licensed school social workers, school nurses and other mental health professionals to support our students. Counselors will respond to emails in one to two business days. You can schedule a Google Hangout meeting with your counselor during their weekly Office Hours or you can email your counselor to request an alternate time.

Resources for students and families recommended by our counselors during the COVID-19 crisis:
 
  • Take care of your body. Eating healthy meals, exercising and getting at least seven hours of sleep a night. Even while maintaining a safe distance from other people, you can still go outside! Regular exercise can reduce anxiety. Just be sure to protect yourself and others by following these guidelines for managing anxiety and stress.
 
  • Do things that give you purpose and meaning. Helping others is a gift, and it is good for your own well-being. Many in our community are more vulnerable to the impact of the novel coronavirus. You can help others by offering reassurance and emotional support, for instance.
 
  • Take care of basic needs including food security. Click here for “grab and go” food distribution centers. LAUSD, in partnership with the Red Cross, and charter schools are providing nutritious meals to all students who need them during the temporary closure of schools.
 
  • The Grab & Go Food Centers opened Wednesday, March 18 through the length of the shutdown or until LA County advises otherwise. The closest Grab & Go Food Center is Our Community Charter (OCS) from 10am-12pm, Monday through Friday. OCS is located at 10045 Jumilla Ave., Chatsworth, CA 91311. Free boxed breakfasts and lunches will be available for children under 18. Meals can only be handed to children so please make sure they are present. Additional Grab & Go Meal distribution will be HERE
 
  • Take care of your mind. Constant searching, scrolling or consumption of coronavirus news will only make us feel more afraid and powerless. Take breaks from media coverage and use trusted resources for updates rather than checking unreliable sites such as the Los Angeles County Department of County Health
 
  • Pay attention to how you’re feeling. Fear, worry and dread are normal reactions during this unprecedented time. People who have pre-existing mental health concerns are more vulnerable and face a higher risk of worsening mental health as the virus spreads. For additional mental health information, refer to trusted resources, such as The World Health Organization and The Center for Disease Control
 
  • Social distancing does not mean social isolation. You can reach out and stay connected to others by using technology such as google hangouts, Zoom group calls, and cellphone texting and conversations. Personal relationships are crucial in maintaining perspective and elevating mood.
 
  • Increase your feel-good activities. Whether it’s mindfulness, talking to your friends and family members, going for walks, taking part in sports, journaling, or watching Netflix, now is the time to increase positive experiences in your daily schedule. For a quick stress reliever, UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center offers free guided meditations in English and Spanish.
