Health and Wellness
Linden Hall has a dedicated team of professionals to ensure the health and wellness of our students. Our faculty and staff know that meeting students' physical and emotional health needs allows them to thrive both academically and socially.
Our Health and Wellness Center is located in the Annex, and a Licensed Registered Nurse and Licensed Social Worker are available to students during the school day. Moreover, health care is available on an emergency basis 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our students' health and well-being is our number one priority. Communication between parents and the school nurse is very important. The school physician provides direct medical care by appointment and is available by consultation as needed.
The Health and Wellness Center is staffed by a Licensed Practical Nurse to serve the needs of both day and boarding students when school is in session. The school nurse is on duty Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The school nurse is also available to dorm staff for questions or emergencies during off-duty hours.

Health and Wellness Courses
Classroom-based courses take place throughout the year at all grade levels, focusing on the "whole student" and giving her the tools she needs to succeed.
Health and Wellness courses address a broad range of concepts related to social-emotional health, well-being, and more. Topics covered include internet safety, self-defense, depression prevention, identity theft education, bullying, empathy, nutrition, financial literacy, environmental-mindedness and sustainability, leadership, and other important life skills.
In our health and wellness courses, students learn and prepare for life beyond the classroom. Our girls regularly practice the topics discussed in these classes and internalize what they learn.
Counseling services include crisis intervention, individual counseling, group counseling, and parent consultation. Appointments are available by student or counselor request, faculty and parent referral, or on a drop-in basis. Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to seek support when concerns arise.
For ongoing counseling services, the School Counselor can provide referrals for therapists and clinicians outside of school.
