Emotional Support (SITES)
This program is a school-based treatment program designed for children and adolescents in need of mental health treatment whose mental health needs cannot be met in a traditional classroom. The treatment program offers both therapeutic and educational services to clients in the classroom setting. These services are designed to provide maximum access to instruction while providing supports to either prevent the need for hospitalization or as a transition back to the school setting after a mental health hospitalization.
Referrals for these services must be made by the student’s home school district or charter school.
For information contact your school district’s Student Services or Special Education Office.
