School-Based TeleBehavioral Health

Brought to you by Children's Health℠ Virtual Care

Using the latest in health care technology to help your child manage stress and other emotions

Many students struggle with stress and emotional situations. If you’ve noticed your child or teenager being impacted, they may feel more comfortable talking to a therapist or counselor virtually. That’s why we’re pleased to offer School-Based TeleBehavioral Health at your child’s school. 

With your permission, your student can video chat with a licensed behavioral health provider – right from school, right from a tablet. You can join the session from work or home, too. And in most cases, you don’t need to leave work, and your child doesn’t need to leave school. It’s a convenient option for expert behavioral health care.
