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.
