The session aims to provide important information in regards to supporting the mental health of students and the well-being of our counsellors. The session will be moderated by Sameer Arora, Vice Principal, Legacy School, Bangalore.
Our experts understand that school counsellors do so much more than secure their children’s higher education goals. Our discussion will offer some great insights into supporting, parents and students emotionally as they pursue their higher education goals.
