School-based behavioral health centers make getting counseling as simple as walking down the hall. Giving kids and teens access to behavioral health care at school puts them in a better position to learn. Care is provided in a location that is safe and convenient. Onsite health care professionals collaborate with schools to address the broad range of concerns and adverse experiences that affect students’ healthy mental development.
