The School-Based Program is a community-based program involved with a number of Columbus City Schools. The population served primarily consists of youth who are experiencing non-academic barriers to school success. The Behavioral Health Therapist will consult with teachers and administrative staff and provide services directly to youth, but also follow up in the home. Interventions primarily involve Cognitive-Behavior Therapy but family interventions are informed by a family systems approach. The program has also implemented the Too Good for Violence curriculum, en evidence-based model for violence prevention. School-Based Therapists typically have two to three contacts per week with a youth, including a home visit involving the caregivers. Services are provided in the community and typically involve both therapy and case management services. 24/7 crisis support is provided.
