Welcome to the Stressbusters Committee
Dr. Alan Goodwin, as principal of WWHS, started the Stressbusters Committee in 2004. A subcommittee of the Counseling Advisory Committee (CAC), Stressbusters is part of the Whitman PTSA.
The Committee aims to help students, parents and staff:
- build resilience for handling some of the "normal" stresses associated with high school;
- identify and reduce unhealthy stress levels and their sources.
The committee also champions special initiatives that further facilitate community wellness and support.
