How Oakton Can Help

Students have many experiences throughout high school that can result in a variety of emotions that range from happy and rewarding to sad and traumatic. Oakton High School cares about the well-being of every student. At times when emotions become overwhelming or difficult to handle, we encourage students to seek help whether it be for themselves or a friend. Parents and teachers can support kids too by familiarizing themselves with signs and symptoms of emotional distress and acknowledging that any student can experience distress at one time or another.
