Mental Health and substance abuse problems affect more children and adolescents today than ever before. Yet, asking for help is often one of life's most difficult tasks. That's why Prestera and Cabell County Schools have partnered together to make services available at every school.
School-based therapists provide services to students who need assistance with school by providing support with grades, behavior, or emotional needs. These services may include therapy, counseling, tutoring, and crisis management.
Prestera is focused on education, treatment, and supportive interventions.
Children Services include family-centered treatment and intervention...
- Individual, group, and family therapy
- 24-hour crisis intervention
- In-home intervention
- Parenting education
- Support groups
