  • 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.

Safe 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.

One-on-one Follow Up

Therapists can provide individualized follow up at their campus for students who complete our online and in-person programs. This ensures continuity of care while therapists assess the students’ need for additional resources and support

Behavior Referral Response

We provide on-site behavioral interventions that focus on improving classroom conduct and school culture.
