Westside Expands Children’s Behavioral Health Partnership
Posted August 26, 2019
Westside Community Schools would like our families to be aware of our beneficial partnership with Children’s Behavioral Health at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center. This innovative collaboration allows us to address the mental and behavioral health needs of our children and families district-wide. New this year, our partnership has expanded to offer more onsite services at Westside Middle School, Westside High School, and Westside West Campus.
Through this program, students and their families can connect with professionals at Children’s Behavioral Health in a number of flexible ways.
- Contact Children’s Behavioral Health directly at 402-955-3900 to schedule an appointment.
- Rely on school professionals to establish the connection and facilitate the appointment, either onsite at your child’s school (where applicable) or at Children’s Behavioral Health.
- Speak with your school counselor, social worker, school psychologist or principal for additional information.
Throughout the community, students and their families encounter a range of concerns, including stress, depression, cyber-bullying, gender identity, inattention, impulsivity, test anxiety, grief, family conflict, communication problems, eating disorders and self-destructive behaviors. Psychologists at Children’s Behavioral Health are eager and well equipped to help address any cognitive, emotional, developmental, or personal issue that your student or family might be facing. These services can be scheduled at your convenience, often within 48 hours if necessary.
We believe our partnership with Children’s Behavioral Health serves to enhance the existing mental and behavioral health supports available to students and families within the Westside Community Schools. Please feel free to contact your school for more information.
