School Based Mental Health

Therapists work in schools with students who have emotional and behavioral challenges. The focus is on intervening early to help children function successfully within their schools and prevent the need for more costly and intensive treatment and alternative school placements.

We assess student needs and develop individualized treatment goals, with:

  • Weekly individual therapy sessions in the school, focused on improving school functioning and performance
  • Family therapy and support in the home or community
  • Weekly teacher consultation on specific students’ needs and whole classroom interventions
  • Group therapy focused on a variety of topics depending on needs identified by the school district

We also provide trainings to increase staff capacity to work successfully with students.
