School-Based Programs

Therapeutic/Education-Focused Programs

Several Canvas Health day programs are either school-based or in other educational environments.

Therapeutic Learning Center

Day treatment services are developed and provided in a center-based daily therapeutic environment for children ages 11 to 17 whose mental health needs are impacting learning and school attendance. Collaboration between the family and school districts helps to build the appropriate skills for the child’s successful return to their community school. Special educational needs of the child are met in the context of a treatment program that includes medication management, individual, group and family therapy. Children attend this program daily during normal school hours, including summer sessions, and are referred by school districts. Services take place in the middle school of the Canvas Health mental health center.
