Mental Health Program
Our School Based Mental Health Program promotes behavioral and mental health wellness and currently partners with 2 charter schools and 9 public schools in Esparto, Winters, Knights Landing and Clarksburg.
Our Highly skilled therapists are placed within schools to aid in the reduction of mental health stigma by providing access to barriers through cultural responsiveness and timely treatment. Therapists provide screenings, assessments, and referral for treatment, for children ages 6-18.
Clients of all ages seeking individual therapy will meet with a therapist, one-on-one, to identify needs and to set goals. As needed, therapists will include caregivers and work with them and the client on resolving the issues associated with the identified goals.
Good mental health is critical to children's success in school and life. Students who receive social-emotional and mental health support, perform better academically. Left unmet, mental health problems can result in academic and behavior problems, dropping out, and delinquency. Professional counselors are available to help students work through a wide variety of issues that they might be facing.
RISE recognizes and is sensitive to the challenges many LGBTQ individuals face - from the process of coming out to facing peers, Family members, and the larger community. We offer confidential counseling for LGBTQ youth, their parents, and siblings.
