Isabella Citizens for Health offers mental/behavioral health services throughout the school year, located directly at the school-based site. Services offered include:
- Screening for Emotional & Behavioral Health Difficulties
- Individual & Family Counseling
- Comprehensive Behavioral Health Assessments
- Case Management, Prevention Intervention & Treatment
- Confidential Services
How does a student enroll to use these services?
Students may be referred by a parent, teacher, school official, or they may self-report their needs to the school-based outpatient therapist. Appointments are best; however, students may be seen on a walk-in basis. Services require a Consent for Treatment Form to be completed by a parent or legal guardian and returned to the school. A parent may, but does not need to be, present at appointments. The school-based outpatient therapist will contact parents if there are any questions that arise related to the appointment.
Does a student need health insurance to be seen by the school-based therapist?
Health insurance is not required. Assistance is available to apply for Medicaid or other insurances for students who do not have health insurance. No child will be denied access to services based on inability to pay.
