Half of all mental illness begins by age 14 and on average it takes eight to 10 years, from the onset of symptoms to a diagnosis. These are critical developmental years. When children living with mental illness have access to services they are more likely to develop educational and social experiences they need to succeed in life.
Our masters level clinicians offer confidential mental health screening and outpatient services to children ages 5 to 18 in the following Taylor and Lincoln Park public schools:
Taylor High School
Taylor Virtual Learning Academy
Eureka Heights Elementary
West Middle School
Lincoln Park High School
Referrals to the school based program often come through teachers and staff, but parents and children over the age of 14 can request to meet with a CCS clinician to determine if services are right for them.
If your child’s school does not have a CCS therapist onsite, our agency outpatient services are an excellent option.
