Since 2013 Four County has been a leader in outcome-driven, school-based mental health services in the state of Indiana. Four County offers comprehensive, tiered school supports to address social, emotional, and behavioral well-being. We service 26 school corporations and have clinicians embedded in 91 school buildings. We design our school-based programming to meet the unique needs of our school partners and are aligned with state educational initiatives . Our school-based supports include: Therapists, School Psychologists, and Skills Trainers.
School Based Skills Trainers are assigned to schools to support students who have emotional or behavioral difficulties that have a negative impact on academic and social performance in schools. Skills Trainers may provide psycho-educational group experiences and/or individual skill building sessions to assist students in learning new ways to cope with stressors or navigate social experiences. This is done with the support of curriculum that has shown to improve the lives of those we serve. These individuals are engaged in services within the school and in some cases, within the classroom. Skill Trainers connect with the rest of the treatment team to best address the needs of the client through coordination of services.
What happens during holiday and summer breaks?
When schools are on break, Four County school-based staff continue care through home visits and structured group sessions during short holiday breaks. For students with more intensive emotional and behavioral service needs, Four County offers a comprehensive summer program.
