What are school-based mental health services?

School-based mental health services are professional assessments, therapies, and skill trainings provided to individual students at the school, with the support and involvement of the student's parent. We work with Stateline Mental Health Services to provide services to pre-kindergarten, elementary, middle school, and high school students and their families.  To find out more about State Line Mental Health Services please CLICK THIS LINK.
