School Based Program

Currently, individual and group therapy is provided in schools throughout Boston. The school based mental health program currently services children and adolescents in some of the most diverse communities within the city. The school clinicians work closely with administrators, teachers, and support staff in order to better meet the academic, emotional, and behavioral needs of children. All clients receiving therapy services within one of our clinics or partnership schools have access to our outpatient psychopharmacology services at the Brighton location, as well as access to a 24/7 on-call system.
