The School-Based Day Treatment Program provides public schools with emotional and behavioral support for their student populations in order to maximize academic achievement and to assist in maintaining the students served in the regular school environment. The ages served are pre-school up to and including high school freshman. The Day Treatment Counselors provide a 6:1 student to counselor ratio. This service focuses on individual and group counseling, crisis intervention and management, increased awareness of problem solving skills, behavior modification, and family support. The program is the nucleus to providing other needed mental health services for children in the school setting.
