Multi-Disciplinary, Integrated Model to Mental Health Services
As an LCMHP, you know how important it is to address the root cause of each student’s concern so that they can fully engage with their curriculum. One of the best ways to do this is by applying an Integrated Systems of Support Model to related services, which we support in our partnering schools.
Integrated Systems of Support Approach to Therapy & Related Services
This consultative model is based on the understanding that students benefit most when their interventions are aligned. It involves integrating interventions across all therapy sessions and related services as well as providing multi-disciplinary training for teachers.
In this context, the LCMHPs who engage with us often lead trainings for teachers, school staff, administrators, and even fellow clinicians on best practices for supporting students’ mental health needs.
Students Move Through a Continuum of Support
Additionally, as students move through their education and interventions, the support the need changes. This might look like increasing the intensity and individualization of mental health support during times of crisis or transitioning to encourage capacity, not dependency.

For over two and a half decades, we have seen school-based clinicians thrive as independent contractors. While working alongside PTS, you will choose between a part- or full-time schedule, which can help you determine the work-life balance that works best for you.
