To better meet the needs of our community, The Bradley Center set off on an endeavor last year to reach more children in need of mental-health services. We needed to find a way to get mental-health services to children where they are: in their schools.
We kicked off our School-Based Mental Health program and we’re excited to report that it is a success! As part of this comprehensive program, The Bradley Center offers customized mental-health services to surrounding school districts, including therapeutic support for students, professional support for staff, and education for parents.
Two school districts recently sent letters to express the success of these services, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to share a few of the things they had to say.
Cornell School District shared:
“Cornell School District has had many providers throughout the years; however, none of those has been able to assist our staff and students quite like The Bradley Center’s School-Based Mental Health team has. They have provided us with an effective ‘one stop shop’ model with their mental-health clinicians, behavioral consultants, professional development, and training personnel as well as psycho-educational groups, supports, and collaboration with families. We look forward to many years of our partnership!”
Staff from Moon Area High School shared:
“I have worked daily with the four therapists who were assigned to our elementary, middle, and high schools. They were extremely professional in their interactions with school personnel, parents, and students. All the students they served were very pleased with the therapy they received. Communication between the therapists, along with the director of the program, was just a phone call away with an instant answer. Our school district was blessed to have had The Bradley Center providing their services.”
