Are We in Your School?

August 31, 2017

Community Mental Health Services are provided in the school setting to meet students in an environment that is natural, minimizing the stigma associated with mental health service and to minimize the barrier of transportation that often prevents youth from receiving the services they need. The services are designed to promote positive mental health, provide early identification of psychological and social problems to reduce non-cognitive barriers to learning, and reduce the risk factors associated with school failure.  Specialists work with students to develop effective coping skills, reduce problem behavior and achieve school success. Services may also be provided in the home, office or community setting when indicated.  For a list of schools and contact information click here.
