School-Based Services

School-based services are an effective way for children and parents to address school performance and social and emotional learning while at school. Our providers start by assessing the child’s immediate needs and collaborating with the child’s parents and teachers to develop a treatment plan. In addition to school performance, we want the treatment plan to focus on improving the student’s overall well-being. If the provider finds that a child or their family needs more specialized care, they can refer them to Hamilton Center outpatient.

Admin specialized

Specialized Counseling Available

Our providers are embedded in the schools and work directly with school counselors and teachers to create impactful treatment plans for students. If a provider finds that a student needs more specialized care for issues unrelated to school, they have direct referral channels to outpatient service at Hamilton Center — where children and their families can begin to address those larger issues.

Admin emphasis

Emphasis on Social and Emotional Learning Skills

Skills are developed in one-on-one sessions and are a pivotal part of the treatment plan. These activities develop resilience, focus and attention, communication, and most importantly, social and emotional learning skills.

Evidence-Based Practice

Mental health and Substance use Curriculums backed by research

Hamilton Center offers a variety of evidence-based practices that are designed to serve the individual student and the student body as a whole. Focused on socio-emotional learning, these curriculums foster a positive and mindful culture around mental health and substance use related issues. Students can learn how to address their own needs through the development of communication skills skills and coping skills. They can also learn to identify the needs of others who may be struggling with mental health or substance related issues and most importantly, discover how to respond to those situations appropriately.
