School Therapist: Shelton Young

  • Greetings, my name is Shelton Young, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker; and I serve as the School Therapist here at Welborn Academy of Science and Technology. Over the years, I have provided services in child protection, day treatment settings, schools, private practice, and a university counseling center. I use a plethora of therapeutic techniques and modalities to deliver culturally adaptive and trauma-informed mental health services. 

     The Mental Health Services Program Offers the following:

    • Individual Therapy
    • Group Therapy
    • Referrals to Community Providers
    • Wildcat Walk-In Hours
      • I am aware that situations requiring immediate attention can occur. Wildcat Walk-ins are walk-in blocks where students can access services without an appointment during a crisis. 
    • Workshops/Outreach
      • I lead workshops on coping, increasing distress tolerance, mindfulness meditation, and decreasing the stigma regarding mental health within the school. 

    Parents/guardians with questions about the Mental Health Program and its offerings may contact me at (336- 819- 2880) or by email at
