The Welfare Office and the Counseling Team

Safe and Sound

Central to the Mission of Berlin International School is creating “a  safe, supportive environment where the physical and emotional integrity of each member of our community is respected.”

Vital to this is the work of our Welfare Office, which is staffed by a fulltime professional who monitors the physical well-being of our community, and our team of counselors who provide advice, guidance, and counseling services to the whole school community. Both the Welfare Office and the Counseling Team have been vital to our navigation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please be aware that at this challenging time, social, mental health, and emergency services are also available in Berlin, though sometimes hard to find. You can find resources in multiple languages via the Berlin Welcome Center, such as in their Support in Emergency Situations and Help and Support for webpages. The Bizirkamt Steglitz-Zehlendorf lists many Supports and Hotlines (in German) as well.
