School districts are designed for learning. Although there has been an effort to expand services in school districts, implementation of mental health services continues to lag behind.

Testimonial:

Hey team I just want to say telehealth makes a real difference. I was so hesitant to work remotely thinking it wouldn't be the same, couldn't build rapport, etc...

I just want you all to know today I had a teenager girl that I have worked with since January that got up in front of the whole grade telling her story about being suicidal and how it's no joke. Then she proceeded to tell them she had a therapist and gave them my name.

She explained how much I have helped her. It truly melted my heart to hear what she had done because we all know most days we don't feel like we do much. Today a difference was made as she tearfully shared her story.
