How We Help: Individual

We give students the opportunity to speak openly about their experiences in a confidential and safe environment.

Our Master’s-level therapists implement therapeutic models utilizing trauma-informed and evidence-based approaches proven to be effective when working with youth in a school setting.

  • Youth are 6 times more likely to complete evidence-based treatments when offered in-school services relative to other community settings

  • Our individual therapy practices have met with more than 1130 students

  • Over 1620 students have received support through our crisis services

Individual Program Types

Individual Therapy

Therapists meet with students one-on-one to work on specific goals and to help them build confidence in their ability to cope with life’s challenges.

Crisis Support

An immediate intervention for students coping with a distressing event or who present with safety concerns. Our therapists are specially trained in suicide prevention and other counseling techniques that reduce emotional stress in crisis situations.

Telehealth

Students can meet with a therapist through our easy-to-use, confidential Telehealth platform. Therapists provide an orientation and ongoing support for students and families to ensure comfortability with virtual engagement.

Mending Matters Space

We provide students with a therapeutic environment in each Mending Matters office, where they can practice coping skills independently in order to return to class ready to learn. Students have the option to check-in with the therapist or to self-regulate in a cozy, living room-like space.

Resource Coordination

We provide case management and resource coordination to students and families so they can access essential needs such as food, housing, or healthcare. With our knowledge of various supports, we can ease the process of seeking help by offering relevant, up-to-date information.
