School-Based Programs

School based mental health services strengthen students and their families through prevention and intervention within a school setting. In order to determine eligibility for the program, students need to complete a Diagnostic Assessment conducted by a mental health professional. If determined eligible, a mental health professional or practitioner will meet with the student and family to formulate goals and objectives identified by the family and student in conjunction with feedback from school professionals.

Services Available Include:

  • Individual, family, and group psychotherapy and skills training directed towards changing or reducing symptoms of a mental health condition aimed at improving functioning at home, school, and in the community
  • Diagnostic Assessments and treatment planning by a Licensed Mental Health Professional
  • Student specific consultations with parents and school staff

Payment Options:

  • Medical Assistance, if receiving CTSS
  • 3rd party insurance, if receiving therapy
  • School linked mental health grant

Summer Programming

Summer CTSS programming allows children and families to receive year-round support and continuation of skill development.  Children have the ability to continue to work on their skills in a group and individual setting.  These continued skills can help children improve their relationships and enhance their overall ability to cope with difficulties or changes in their lives.  This also allows families to stay in contact with their child's school based practitioner throughout the summer which allows a continuity of services.  Please call to learn more information and to see if summer programming is available in your area.
