Services :: School Based Services

This program offers mental health services to children, adolescents, and families in 17 schools within the Paramount Unified School District and more than 20 schools within the Long Beach Unified School District.

Therapists work closely with school counselors and administrators to identify students who are not reaching their academic and socio-emotional potential due to unmet mental health needs. The services provided are primarily field-based and focus on meeting the child and family in their environment to increase the child’s ability to function at school, in the home, and in their community. Therapists provide individual, family, and/or group therapy at the school site or in the child’s home. Case management services are offered to link families to needed resources within the community, and clients are given access to psychological testing and psychiatric consultation as needed. Ongoing collaboration and support is also offered to school staff, including consultation related to mental health issues that affect school functioning.

Services are provided through our Compton and Long Beach Clinics.
