32 clinicians in all nine BPS schools, supporting every child.
Every Brookline public school student, family, teacher, and school has full access to Brookline Center care.
Throughout the U.S., 1 in 10 children has a mental health disorder severe enough to impair functioning at home, in school, and in the community. Many will not get timely treatment. Here in Brookline, we are committed to getting kids the care they need, as quickly as possible.
Each year, The Brookline Center’s skilled clinicians provide counseling and consultation to students and staff in each of the nine Brookline Public Schools, in close partnership with parents and guardians. We work with children from young ages through Brookline High School. Children served through our school-based programs are often those with complex needs who benefit from comprehensive supports and multiple services. The Brookline Center also provides observation, evaluation, preventative care, crisis planning and intervention, advocacy and care coordination for individual students. Each year, these clinicians work in school with hundreds of children and teens, ages 4-18, and offer extensive collaboration with and education to families, teachers, and staff.
