Mental Health for Military Students
At Pine Forest High School, we recognize that there are many demands on our military student population that may exhaust their ability to cope. Frequent moves, grief/loss, losing/making friends, separation from loved ones, etc…All of these challenges impact mental health. Students at Pine Forest understand that they are never alone in those challenges. We have several resources available to support our military and civilian students alike.
