While the rest of the country is arguing about guns, I am trying to do something that can really be of value to children and the mental health of this country in general. School counselors are uniquely trained to help kids with a wide variety of issues, and are responsible for their academic, social, and emotional well-being. They are trained to identify students who are having issues and to find the best course of action for them, and also to support and advocate for all students. Sadly, counselors are not mandated in schools in this country. I truly believe that what schools need is counselors, not guns.


I made this petition at whitehouse.gov because I feel that now more than ever, counselors are needed in schools. If you agree, please sign it and pass it on! If not, I'm sorry to have bothered you!
