School-based mental health services strengthen students and their families through prevention and intervention within a school setting. For eligible students, a mental health professional and/or practitioner meet with the student and family to formulate goals in conjunction with feedback from school professionals. Students may receive individual, family, and group psychotherapy and skills training directed towards changing and reducing symptoms of a mental health condition aimed at improving functioning at home, school, and in the community.

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, maintaining continuity of services. Please call to learn more information and to see if summer programming is available for your school.
