Last month, our School-Based Mental Health therapists gathered for a wonderful back-to-school retreat. The team brushed up on paperwork, celebrated successes, learned new clinical skills, and had some fun! The team, which provides diagnostic assessments and therapy services to students at their schools, values the time they can get together, swap ideas, and learn best practices from each other.
The School-Based Mental Health Team is committed to supporting students, families, teachers, and administrators. Therapists work within the school’s community setting to help identify and address mental health concerns, eliminate barriers to accessing care, and provide services in a way that makes the most sense for students.
Mental Health services provided through school
School-based therapists can provide mental health services to students during the school day or after school. We can help students work through things like depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, behavioral issues, and more. Canvas Health therapists work collaboratively with others in the school, consulting with school administrators, teachers, and other treatment providers.
Parents, legal guardians, and caregivers also can access support from the therapist by scheduling a telehealth appointment. During these sessions, the therapist can provide support and strategies for helping the child at home. Uninsured families can apply for grant funding to help cover the cost of therapy and support.
Services are offered in person as well as via telehealth, which is accessible by computer, tablet, or smartphone. Learn more about Canvas Health’s School-Based Mental Health Services and meet the fantastic members of our team!
