CPSD School-Based Mental Health Services
Why School Based Mental Health?
When students are struggling, learning becomes more challenging. Students in crisis may miss class more often or have trouble paying attention when they are in class. Allowing access to mental health services within the student’s own school provides students a familiar environment to address their needs, helping to establish a stronger foundation for student learning.
