Identify through a screening process a broad range of issues that teens experience that create challenges for them in school and in their lives. This includes mental health issues such as depression, and also includes a suicide risk assessment. The goal is to provide support and referrals to help them deal with mental health challenges.
Once a student comes to the program, they are informed of confidentiality parameters and voluntarily assent. They are screened on a computer then given an in-person interview. If a student screens positive and shows a need for further evaluation, he/she receives a referral to support in the form of mental health support, group support, or other resources as needed. nt.
