Mental Health Consulting Program For Parents

Anxiety-Related School 

What is mental health consultation: Mental health consultation happens when a mental health therapist leverages their clinical specialty to help address mental health-related community problems. Mental health consultants often consult with individuals, companies, institutions, and government agencies individually or in combination to address mental health related community problems.  

Anxiety-related school refusal: Happens when a school-aged minor is no longer able to consistently attend school due to an underlying anxiety disorder/issue that is triggered by the learning environment. Schools often have limited resources to help parents of children experiencing anxiety-related school refusal. In addition, sending your child to therapy to address their anxiety-related school refusal issues does not address the multi-faceted issue of how to reintegrate your child back into the learning environment.
