School-Based Services Program

Adler Community Health Services (ACHS) specializes in improving access to health services by bringing psychological services to schools who educate disadvantaged students. Our school-based psychological services are designed to be accessible to those who will most benefit from them yet who are least likely to receive them. Forging collaborative, trustworthy relationships with partner schools in underserved communities so that calmness, knowledge, empowerment and hope may replace fear, ignorance, helplessness and hopelessness, is a component of the program.

The School-Based Psychological Services Program provides a variety of services to individuals of all ages, ranging from children in pre-K through adults in college, including but not limited to individual and group psychotherapy, psycho-educational programming, staff development in-services, staff consultations, and psychological evaluations.
