School Based Services

Mid-Del Youth and Family Center contracts with the Mid-Del School System to provide confidential school based services to assist with multiple behavioral and emotional issues that arise in the school setting.

Some children experience significant emotional or behavioral difficulties in the school. School-based services enable our clinicians, your child’s teachers, and other support staff to communicate directly and effectively coordinate care. We work closely with your child’s school to maximize the benefits from counseling. Many families have difficulties attending a traditional outpatient clinic. This service enables children to receive counseling directly in the school they attend each day. Family counseling is also provided and encouraged. Parents are required to be a part of treatment planning.

Services provided include:

  • Comprehensive Intake/Assessment
  • Case Management/Referral
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Individual, Family, and Group Counseling
  • Prevention Education

Benefits of School Based Program:

  • Available to all children grades K through 12
  • Services provided at school and tailored to meet the child's own individual needs
  • Flexible scheduling to meet the child's and family's needs
  • Improved school performance
  • Improved behavior at school and home
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence
