The APEX Program is a partnership with participating schools to provide school-based mental health services to students in grades K-12. APEX staff work closely with school staff to identify the needs of students and link them with appropriate services. Some of the services provided within the school setting include assessment, diagnostic evaluation, individual, family and group therapy and case management/community support. This school collaboration provides families with streamlined access to mental health services and serves to help improve academics, behavior, school attendance and ultimately graduation rates.
