Counseling services for children/youth and their families
MCT has three student programs in which we provide strengths-based, individual, and family-centered services to address depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences or other mental health struggles. Participating in these programs will help students reach their full potential at school, at home, and in the community. After an initial assessment with one of our strengths-based clinicians, students will be placed in the program best suited to their goals.
Student Assistance Program
Preventive and early intervention therapy and life skills workshops for students experiencing early signs of mental health disorders and/or grief. Strengths-based services to support students by teaching life skills and coping strategies to address anger management, depression, anxiety, and trauma.
- Meeting with a therapist two to three times per month, caregiver meeting once a month.
School-Aged Treatment Services
Therapy services and life skills workshops for school-aged children and youth who are experiencing difficulties due to anxiety, depression, PTSD, and/or mental health disorders.
