CIS Needs

CIS BearheadShout



Cameron Dumas, the on-campus CIS Mental Health Specialist, specializes in small groups and one-on-one therapy sessions for a number of SBMS students grappling with a number of issues from a parent’s drug or alcohol addiction, incarceration, or death. She also works with students who are finding life hard at the moment and may be dealing with anger issues, grief, thoughts of self-harm and more. One of the ways Cameron gets students to express themselves is through art, sand therapy, writing and drawing.


Cameron has asked for some help gathering the following, so she can continue to reach out and help the students who need her — she is such a blessing to have on campus!


  • journals
  • magazines (the kids make “word art” boards – inspiring messages, pictures, etc.)
  • stickers
  • art supplies — markers, tape, glue, scissors, construction paper, duct tape, glitter sticks
  • shoe boxes & items for “comfort kits” —  (“comfort kits” are for Cameron’s students who have anxiety and show signs of depression or are depressed. Students make these kits out of donated shoe boxes — they decorate the boxes and fill them from a selection of “feel good” items that help them relax. They store their “comfort items” in their box. Cameron likes sensory objects — such as clay, small stuffed animals, stones, scented oils, candy or snack, quotes, small notebooks to journal, slinkies, small balls/marbles or stress balls.


Please drop donations at the front office labeled for Cameron Dumas.
