Services Offered

Our district-selected clinicians create tailored learning environments, based on the need of the student and the school.

Tiered In-District Mental Health Support

A student’s chance to achieve success in school and in the community improves with easy access to school-based therapeutic services. Each program must be specifically tailored, however, to create the optimal environment for success.

School Presence

Our School Presence Program is an evidence-based treatment program for children and families struggling with school avoidance issues, including those who are experiencing mental health symptoms, resulting in impairments such as excessive school absenteeism.

Outpatient School Clearances

School districts may require a clearance letter as a condition of a student returning to school after an incident that presents as a potential danger to self, others or property. CarePlus provides assessments with written determination that the student involved does or does not present as a danger to themselves or others within 24-48 hours to ensure unnecessary school days are not missed.

Continuum of Care

Through CarePlus’ integrated care network, we offer a full continuum of wrap-around services to fully support youth and families. We believe that coping skills and strengths developed in childhood carry into adult life, helping individuals reach their full potential. With this in mind, we strive to deliver programming and resources that assist in navigating our complicated world.
