What is Mental Health?

"Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood."

"Mental Health ... is not a destination, but a process. It's about how you drive not where you are going." - Noam Sphpancer, PH.D.

Educational Therapists

Our Educational Therapy program works to remove social/emotional/behavioral barriers to education by providing equitable access to school-based mental health services for each and every student in order to maximize academic achievement and foster personal and emotional growth.
