    A student’s behavior, through thoughts, words and actions, plays an important role in his or her academic success.
     
    The Behavioral Health Center works with students and their families as well as educators, administrators, counselors, psychologists and social workers to assess behavioral health challenges and to develop a treatment plan. That plan may involve any number of appropriate interventions such as individual and family therapy, community resource connections or psychiatric and medication services. The result is less student learning time lost to dealing with behavior issues.
