One in five children and adolescents experience a mental health problem during their school years.  Unfortunately, estimates of up to 60% of students do not receive the treatment they need due to stigma and lack of access to services.  Horizons partners with our local school districts by providing services in the schools to help increase access to the services that students need to be more successful in school.


Benefits of School-based services 

  • Access is increased
  • Decreased delay in identifying the need for mental health services
  • Decreased delay in receiving mental health services
  • Students are able to miss less class time
  • More immediate response in times of crisis
  • Increased communication between Horizons staff, school staff and parents
  • Increased support for school staff

Services Provided in the schools include:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Case Management
  • Crisis Management
  • Crisis Case Management
  • Attendant Care
  • Individual Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (IPRS)
  • Psychosocial Group

How to Get Referred:

There are two ways to get referred to school-based services:

  • Come in to Horizons during our walk-in intake times (no appointment needed!) and talk to the intake therapist.  That therapist can refer you to the therapist that is in the school.
  • The school Principal can refer your child to services
