School Based

School based mental health program helps identify children and teens in need of mental and behavioral health services. Through these school based programs, children and adolescents are able to receive a free assessment as well as mental health treatment and counseling in an environment where they are comfortable. This increases chances of at-risk children and teens getting the help they need; and reduces placement outside of the school. Universal Community Behavioral Health (UCBH) has partnered with Bellefonte Area School District to provide assessment and outpatient therapy in the school setting.
