Team SUCCESS (formerly Project SUCCESS +) is a free, voluntary program designed to support students in being successful in all aspects of their lives. Team Success counselors meet with students during the school day and have evening hours available to see parents and make presentations to community groups. Each staff member has experience working with adolescents and has received specialized training in prevention and early intervention strategies. Team Success staff are employed by SOS (Support Our Students) Counseling and are supervised by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. Each Team Success counselor coordinates a range of services including classroom presentations, community activities to raise awareness of mental health related issues, conduct individual screenings and provide referrals, and provide individual counseling and facilitate support groups.
In addition, they meet with students individually and in small groups for education and prevention activities to correct erroneous perceptions about mental health. Flash Welch, M.A in School Counseling Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor is the Team Success Site Manager responsible for coordinating and implementing prevention and education activities at our school. Flash is also a lead programs manager at Support our Students (SOS) Counseling in Santa Rosa. He works with Managers and Counselors at four other school sites that utilize Team Success services. Flash and his team will be available to see students who are using alcohol or other drugs or who have personal, academic or family issues that could lead to substance use or other concerns.
