Gallahue Mental Health Services, Community’s outpatient program, collaborates with local schools to deliver treatment in a non-traditional mental health setting. The school-based program, begun in 1997, enables families to access services in a school’s supportive environment. Our program offers a unique and innovative approach to the delivery of mental health therapy through strength-based, family-focused, outpatient care.
This natural environment allows students, teachers and families to function together successfully in both the classroom and the community. Gallahue's school-based staff offers the added benefit of improving the relationship between staff and students as well as providing convenient access for students and their families who otherwise might not seek treatment. Home-based visits are offered as an added benefit to reach both the student and family.
Ultimately, our goal is to assist children and their families with learning, improving interpersonal and relationships skills as well as becoming productive citizens in their community.
