Student Coping Skills Groups with NCCC!

North Community Counseling Centers is very excited to have the ability to offer FREE coping skills groups to any student in Columbus City Schools and Worthington City Schools! The goal of these groups is to educate, enhance, and practice coping skills, while managing stressors during the school year. Groups are determined by the grade your child is currently in.

Each group will be held once per week for four weeks in September and October and can have a maximum of eight participants each.

These groups will take place online. Parents and/or students will receive a link via email prior to their group’s start.

Note: Your child may sign up for as many groups and dates as they would like. For more services or questions, please contact us at 614-261-3196. A signed waiver may be required dependent on which group your child is enrolled in. Please email your completed permission slip to Michelle Meffley, School-Based Program Director, at mmeffley@northcommunity.com.

Disclaimer: All students must be signed up by 5PM on the Thursday prior to the group’s start date.
