The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is invested in the prevention, intervention, and support in all areas of a student’s social-emotional development. The SAP Team represents faculty members across the disciplines found within Glenbrook North High School.
The mission of the SAP Team is to coordinate and facilitate school-wide and community events aimed at educating students and staff on topics directly relating to a student’s well-being. These supports and events are available to all GBN students. The SAP Team provides early intervention supports and programs for substance abuse as well as social/emotional and behavioral issues such as, but not limited to: eating disorders, depression, anxiety, daily life stressors and healthy relationships.
The SAP Team offers education and training but does not provide therapy or treatment to individual students, but when appropriate will serve as a conduit to the student’s counselor for those individuals who may need direct assistance. The SAP Team serves in a preventive manner and should be viewed as non-punitive.
