School-Based Mental Health

“To bring about change, you must not be afraid to take the first step. We fail when we fail to try.”
–Rosa Parks

Orion works in partnership with the Monroe School District to provide mental health services to elementary, middle, and high school students and their families. These services are similar to traditional outpatient therapy but are provided in the school setting, an environment that is familiar to the child.

This effort and partnership with the district helps to remove barriers for students that support  

  • access to needed services,  
  • reduce out of school time for travel to/from mental health appointments, and 
  • increase meaningful coordination with families and school staff.

School-Based Mental Health services help create a connected network of caring adults to support the ongoing mental health of children and their families.
