CONCERN- School Based Outpatient Counseling Program

CONCERN is providing school based mental health services at the schools ALL SUMMER LONG! Contact your child's school for more information.


WE WANT TO HELP STUDENTS DISCOVER THEIR GREATNESS BY PROVIDING TRADITIONAL OUTPATIENT THERAPY WITHIN THE SCHOOL WALLS.


Our school-based program targets elementary and secondary-level students with emotional and/or behavioral needs. Students can be referred for services by either school personnel and/or parents.


Students receiving therapy within the school are much more likely to consistently participate in treatment than those who must travel to an outside facility during after-school hours.

School-based therapists capitalize on students’ existing academic and social networks by observing and treating clients within their natural environment.


For information on a referral for school based outpatient counseling with CONCERN, please contact your child's school counselor.

Fun! Fun! Fun! Summer Learning Sites

Here, we’ve compiled a few resources to keep students learning through the dog days of summer, with a particular focus on math and reading. For starters, the Edutopia blog post "Avoiding the Summer Slide in Reading and Writing" from Heather Wolpert-Gawron is chock-full of useful information and strategies for parents and students.

Explore the Outdoors!



It's that time of year again! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the whole family is ready to get outside. Explore the outdoors, discover fun nature crafts, and learn more about the world outside our doorsteps.

When we spend time on our stoops, take a walk around the neighborhood, or visit a nearby park, our senses come alive! We can inspire our children to observe and understand nature by listening for animal sounds, feeling the texture of rocks, seeing the shade made by the trees, smelling freshly cut grass, and tasting raindrops as they fall from the sky.
