Public School Consultation Service
UConn Health's Public School Consultation Service opened in July 2011 as a way to meet the mental health needs of our schools and communities in the state of Connecticut, but also to enhance the educational experience of our trainees.
We offer a myriad of clinical and educational services through the service's three main sections:
- School Evaluation Team (SET)
- School Zone Clinic
- Community Outreach Programs, including Depression Education and Health Promotion Project (DEHPP) and the Anti-Bullying Class (ABC).
We possess the expertise and capability to evaluate students of all ages, work closely with school personnel and families, provide comprehensive reports in a timely manner and make effective educational as well as psychiatric recommendations regarding the impact of students’ mental health on their functioning in different academic settings as well as in their home environment.
Our service is an integral part of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry training program and involves a board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist as well as advanced level resident physicians. UConn School of Medicine students are actively engaged in our community programs as well.
We know education is central in our children’s lives. We are aware of the major efforts made by the schools and parents in helping students deal with mental health issues. Therefore, we are confident we can assist schools, students and their families in this inspiring endeavor.
