Talk with Someone
 
EHS Students if you are dealing with any mental health problem please talk with someone. You have many people that care about you. Talk with a friend, parent, sibling, other family member, teacher, staff or school counselor. Life is not easy and everyone needs support. Please come see me if you are having trouble coping with a situation, if you want unbiased advice or if you just need someone to listen. I am here! You can come by my office, send me an email mullisk@elkin.k12.nc.us.
 
As the school counselor at EHS everything you say is confidential unless........ you want to hurt yourself or others and if you are in immediate danger. Then I obviously will collaborate with resources to get you help immediately.
