Mental Health and Behavioral Support

The Office of Prevention and Intervention assists schools with supporting the mental health needs of students. This includes connecting students to appropriate mental and behavioral health supports. In addition the office of Prevention and Intervention partners with the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbilities Services (DBHIDS), Community Behavioral Health (CBH), behavioral health providers and other community partners for access to behavioral health services.

Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) is a service that is funded through Community Behavioral Health (CBH) that  provides a full range of behavioral health assistance to children and families in the school and/or home and community settings.  The service is provided by an IBHS agency assigned to your child’s school. Similar to School Therapeutic Services (STS) and BHRS Wraparound service, in the school setting IBHS is designed to address the needs of children Pre-K through grade 12 by providing age appropriate, trauma informed, therapeutic interventions to remove barriers to learning. Services  can included individual and group therapy, and one-on-one support as deemed medically necessary.

Like a physical health crisis, a behavioral health crisis can be an upsetting experience for individuals and families. A behavioral health emergency is defined as an emergent situation in which a person’s actions, feelings, and behaviors can lead to them hurting themselves or others. An individual experiencing a behavioral health crisis is in need of assessment and potential treatment. If the person is an immediate danger to themselves or someone else, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1 and let them know you are with someone experiencing a behavioral health crisis.  Otherwise, please follow the districts Behavioral Health Emergencies Procedures which can be found here:   SDP Behavioral Health Emergency Procedures

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is part of the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) that is an early intervention program to help identify and behavioral health, substance abuse, and addictions issues that affect a student’s and connect them to appropriate treatment.  SAP is a state mandated K-12 program.  Parents, Tier 2/3  teams/SAP teams at schools can be referred for an assessment and students are able to self-refer. However, guardian approval is needed for assessment to occur. All schools are assigned to a specific SAP assessment provider.

STEP - Support Team for Educational Partnership

The STEP initiative at The School District of Philadelphia provides mental health, behavioral health and social service support to students and families in select District schools.  Each STEP team has a combination of STEP positions that can include a STEP Clinical Coordinator, a STEP School Behavioral Consultant, a STEP Case Manager and a STEP Family Peer.  This team of mental health professionals can provide therapy, case management, behavior planning and peer support as well as consult on school wide initiatives with a trauma informed lens.  Students and families are wrapped in thoughtful, consistent and culturally responsive services that can and should lead to better outcomes for students in the classroom and in the community.

504 Service Planning

Section 504 service agreements also known as 504 plans are formal documents that schools develop to give students with disabilities the supports they need. These plans prevent discrimination and protect the rights of students with disabilities in school. Students are covered under the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, which is a civil rights law, that protects individuals from discrimination based on disability. Under this law, individuals with disabilities may not be excluded from or denied the opportunity from certain programs.

In the area of education, a section 504 team determines a students eligibility through the process of evaluation and assessment before developing and implementing a plan to meet the needs of the student.

Students with a 504 Plan, along with parents and school officials, document the aids, services, and accommodations afforded to every student to the maximum extent so that they can be educated alongside non-disabled peers. Some of these accommodations include environmental strategies, organizational strategies, behavioral strategies, presentation strategies, evaluation methods, etc.

For more information about how to obtain a 504 plan for your child please contact the school counselor or nurse.

Trauma-Informed School Practices

Schools are sanctuaries, and function as a place of refuge from danger, threat, injury or fear.

A trauma-informed school is one where staff understand the function of trauma-induced behaviors (self-injury, rage, compulsions, etc.), and do not mistake them as intentional or provocative. Staff use objective, neutral language, as opposed to language that labels (i.e. anxious instead of manipulative). Schools that follow trauma-informed practices recognize what practices can be re-traumatizing to a student. Power and control issues are minimized, and the environment is focused on creating a culture of care and safety with an individualized approach.
