School-Based Services & School Mental Health Programs
We partner with area districts to provide the best support to students, families and school faculty. School-Based Services were created as an innovative approach to provide rapid access to care in the school setting. Our team develops formalized processes for school mental health programs, including onsite behavioral health providers through a collaborative team approach.
Providers also assist in linking enrolled students to services outside of the school as needed. It has been proven that integration eliminates barriers to care and provides additional resources for school staff and families. We work directly with students, families and educators onsite in a few different ways. We provide School-Based Support Specialists and Clinicians within schools to offer individual and group services. We are also available for telehealth meetings if they make sense for your district. We strive to be creative and develop flexible arrangements to meet a variety of needs.
Burrell will work with your insurance. If your insurance requires a payment for these services, Burrell will help you understand what the best options are for your child.
If you do not have insurance, we can link you with someone from Burrell to help you access insurance and explore options.
In most cases, no! That’s the great thing about this partnership. Partnering schools are committed to bringing these services into the building in order to make your life easier!
There will be some appointments that parents are required to be present. However, local schools and Burrell are working diligently to make these appointments convenient to attend by bringing them directly into your school buildings. Burrell will keep you informed throughout the process and during the time your student is receiving their support.
This reality creates an enormous stress on our school systems—which are under-resourced—to handle their needs. To be a better partner Burrell has created an integrated approach to services with school districts across Missouri.
