Hebron has a supportive community of faculty who attend to the needs of the whole student, mind, body, and spirit, and who recognize when a student needs mental health or wellness support. We have a responsive group of administrators who meet regularly for Student Support Team Meetings, which keeps student strengths in the forefront while attending to their challenges and growth areas.
Our Director of Mental Health and Wellness, Amanda Miller, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who collaborates with Admissions and is active in transition planning to prepare incoming students and families for a smooth adjustment to our supportive traditional boarding school community.
Mrs. Miller provides open-office hours on a daily basis for walk-ins and is available 24/7 on-call for urgent needs. She is a liaison for parents and a point-person for families to check in about topics related to student mental health and wellness.
If desired, Mrs. Miller consults and collaborates with current and previous therapists and health providers at all levels of care. School-based mental health counseling is available through our Student Health Center. Hebron contracts with an experienced adolescent psychiatrist to provide medication management evaluations and monitoring.
