Student Assistance / Wellness Center

Pascack Valley Regional High School District recognizes the increasing need for interventions and resources to address the social/emotional needs of our student population. The Pascack Valley Wellness Center is an initiative created to provide school-based services to students struggling to manage life stressors. Our overarching goal is to establish a Stigma Free Zone and create a climate that promotes the access of mental health and substance abuse services. We aim to provide both direct and indirect intervention as well as to promote prevention programs. The PV Wellness Center provides:
  • Counseling (Individual, Group, and Family)
  • Psycho-educational resources
  • Community based resources and referrals
  • Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS)
  • Substance abuse prevention/intervention/education
  • Mindfulness education 

The PV Wellness Center is available to all students, families, and faculty. The Center is located adjacent to the cafeteria and also accessible from the front of the school building. Students are welcome to stop down during the school day with a pass from a teacher or during lunch. Parents are encouraged to schedule an appointment through email or phone.

Mrs. Rossig, Student Assistance Counselor


I have been working in Pascack Valley High School as the Student Assistance Counselor for the past 9 years. Prior to coming to PV, I was a special education teacher in the district for 14 years. I am currently the Anti-Bullying Specialist as well as the Intervention and Referral Services Coordinator. Within my role as the PV SAC, I am responsible for the prevention, intervention and referral services provided to students in the areas of substance abuse, bullying and general mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. I am also the advisor for Camp Raspberry, a recreation program which provides our students the opportunity to experience working with children with disabilities from the area.
