“We are seeing students dealing with issues such as anxiety, trauma and depression. The population we are trying to reach is the quiet kids who may not show signs in school,” states Amy DiVita, Liverpool Central School District executive director for special education. “This is an effort for us to meet the mental health needs of our community and our families.”

The goal of school-based behavioral health therapy is to provide better access to mental health services, improve student’s ability to succeed academically, and increase the quality of life for these adolescents. While schools often provide counseling if a student’s struggles are related to a school-based issue, a district’s existing services may not address problems behind the scenes.

“We are putting our students’ mental health on par with their physical health because we are committed, as a school district, to aiding our students in finding the resources they need to be healthy,” said Baldwinsville Central Schools District Superintendent Matt McDonald. “Mental wellbeing is an important component of a child’s overall health, happiness and ability to learn and grow to his or her full potential.”
