School Based Program

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 River Rouge public schools:

  • Kennedy High School
  • Truman High School
  • West Middle School
  • Eureka Heights Elementary
  • STEM Academy, River Rouge

Students who are struggling with learning problems, behavioral issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, bullying, self-harm or thoughts of suicide may benefit from onsite, regular counseling sessions.

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.

For more information, please contact Laura Boros, School Based Coordinator at 313-389-7500 or email lboros@comcareserv.org.

Universal Screening at Eureka Heights Elementary:

During the month of April, will be utilizing an assessment tool for teachers that will help identify students who may be having minor challenges in school, such as following rules and expectations, or making friends. Our goal in using this teacher assessment tool is to identify which children may need some assistance before minor challenges become big problems.


Universal Screening: Self-Assessment

  • Kennedy High School
  • Truman High School
  • West Middle School

During the month of May, a Strengths and Difficulties Screener will be passed out to students during English. This self-assessment tool is a brief behavioral screening questionnaire that asks students about emotional well- being, peer relationships ability to focus and overall behavior.
