Advising elementary school student to get counseling

Present day (or near enough as probably makes no difference), Japan.

This is only for a school assignment, so it doesn't need to be the most realistic thing in the world, but I thought I should ask here anyway. If a teacher has come across something troubling in a student's essay, is there a specific way they should advise the student to get counseling? The student is in fourth grade. The assignment is supposed to be in the form of a comment on the essay, so something like contacting their parents wouldn't be useful here. I know this is a long shot, but if anyone has some helpful information, I'd be grateful to hear it.

Googled: "how to tell a student to get counseling", "how to tell a student to get counseling -university", "how to tell a student to get counseling elementary", "advise student to get counseling", "teacher if you think a student needs counseling". All that's been coming up have been university webpages, descriptions of how counselors advise students, and advice for counselors themselves.

EDIT: Looks like the answer is that it's not a thing that would happen in real life (I kind of figured), so I don't really need any more information on this subject! But if there's something y'all still want to say on the topic, feel free to keep commenting. c:
