School Mental Health Center therapists use evidence-based practices to help students and families identify and treat behavioral issues and mental health concerns. Working with the family, therapists complete a thorough clinical assessment, create therapeutic goals with the student and provide ongoing therapy throughout the year. The treatment approach is strengths-based, rooted in therapeutic models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed care and motivational interviewing. All services are confidential and student health information is protected under the law. SMHC therapists work collaboratively with other school-based programs, such as Communities in Schools, Council on At-Risk Youth and The Safe Alliance to create a wraparound model for the whole child.

Students can be referred for SMHC services through the child study team, parent/guardian or by community referral. Parent/guardian consent is required prior to a student receiving services.  SMHCs offer a variety of payment options for both insured and uninsured students to help meet the range of needs of AISD families.
