The purpose of the School Linked Mental Health Services Program is to offer mental health services to children who may not have access to them otherwise. It is considered a mini mental health center located in the schools. The type of individuals that one may consider referring are those who struggle with depression, low self esteem, anxiety, family conflict, grief, self injury difficulties, relationship difficulties, inattentive behavior, impulsive behavior, anger or aggression. Some areas of focus in sessions are on emotional and behavioral regulation, personal safety/body awareness, social and interpersonal skills, problem solving as well as conflict resolution in both individual and family therapy sessions.
Referrals for services are filtered through the school social workers/counselors and family. Referral forms are available at the main office, through the social worker/counselor, and through Chris Davis or Samantha Dreyer. A parent interest form signed by a youth’s parents serves as a release of information between the school and Sioux Trails Mental Health Center. Upon receipt of a signed referral form, Chris or Samantha will be in contact with the family regarding the inclusion of their youth in services. Should the parent/guardian choose to take advantage of these services, Sioux Trails will then proceed to admit them to the program.
For youth receiving services, session times may be varied during the school day to make sure that youth get the mental health services they need while encouraging success with school work. Chris and Samantha work closely with teachers in this regard. Please contact either Chris or Samantha with questions!
