School Based Counseling

Family-focused treatment

School-Based Counseling Program

Key Point has developed programs in many schools in Central Maryland. These services are designed in collaboration with each school to best meet the needs of the particular school community.

We are pleased to provide a family-focused treatment service. Identified students and families who elect to participate receive a variety of individual family and group services. Our Clinical staff work closely with the family to identify treatment goals and to develop a plan that meets their needs and aids with educational success. All of our confidential services are provided by licensed mental health professionals.

In some cases, counseling alone is insufficient. In those cases, the family is offered the option of having the student evaluated by a Child Psychiatrist. The Child Psychiatrist is available to work closely with the family and the conselor by providing consultation and medications when indicated.

There are many benefits to receiving services in the school instead of the local office. They may include the following:

  • Closer collaboration between the school, the family, and the counselor
  • Increases school success
  • Services attached to the local community
  • Behavioral problems can be addressed in a timely fashion

A child may benefit from our services if any of the following problems are present:

  • A child is sad, irritable, or depressed much of the time
  • A child has difficulty sitting still, concentrating, or completing classwork or homework
  • A child is aggressive or violent toward themselves or others
  • A child becomes withdrawn
  • A child refuses to go to school or finds excuses for staying home
  • A child cannot get along with peers or is rejected by them
  • Family or community problems are having a negative effect on the child
