School-Based Health Clinics

On-site provider to support student health and well-being.

One in 10 young people has a behavioral or mental health challenge that is severe enough to impact how they function at home, school or in the community.  

When children and teens experience trauma, it often leads to more prevalent and troublesome behavioral and mental health issues. This may include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, mood disorders, addiction, problems with controlling impulses, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, thoughts of suicide, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

Without intervention and adequate support, students are less likely to succeed in school, are significantly more at risk of dropping out and are less able to form and maintain healthy relationships. Feelings of disconnection and a lack of support are often at the root of bullying, behavior issues, failure to thrive academically, self-harming and even school violence.

This service partners school districts with community agencies to develop school-based health clinics.  

  • Clinics are staffed by professionals to offer students and their families ready access to essential social, emotional, and behavioral health counseling and support.
  • Scheduling sessions around academic classes eliminates the need for students to miss school time to travel to and from appointments off-site.

Data shows that students with this sort of embedded resource are ten times more likely to access this type of care than those who do not.

What To Expect

  • Professional Staff – Clinical staff conduct all initial clinical evaluation, diagnostic and treatment planning in accordance with guidelines. Case management, psychiatric consultation and medication management are also available as complementary services to counseling. 
    Year-Round and On-Site Treatment – Students and their families benefit from the convenience of on-site treatment, year-round, including vacations. Clinical staff are also available by phone after hours and during vacations.  
    Child-Centered, Trauma-Informed and Solution-Focused – Supports adhere to clinical best practices, specific to the child and family’s unique treatment needs. Individual, family and group therapy options, as indicated by treatment plans, are also provided.
