We work in the largest school districts in the U.S. (New York City Public School District & Atlanta Public Schools), serving our students through innovative mental wellness services.

We believe mental health access must be diverse and incorporate children from all cultural and racial identities, languages, faiths, and lived experiences.

 

Our approach focuses on access to wellness spaces, ranging from traditional therapy to narrative/talk therapy, circles of healing, integration of the arts, and restorative circles.

What

Makes

Our

Model

Different? 

Integrative- Our model is 100% integrated into each school model!


Relationship Centered-We ensure every child is connected to a trusting and loving adult.

 

Accessible-Students can access one of our clinicians on the school grounds when they are in need.

Individualized-Each student receives an individualized plan to support their treatment journey.  

 

Strategic- We work with schools to ensure services are implemented strategically and support each school mission. 

 

Ethnically sensitive - The best ways to heal are the ones that are sensitive to the ethnicity and culture of each student.

Our universal model can be customized to any school in the U.S.
