The South Carolina Department of Mental Health (SCDMH) is the leading School Mental Health Services (SMHS) provider across South Carolina (SC). SMHS  provide school children diagnostic services, intervention services, and a range of treatments including individual, group, and family therapy. During the 2018-2019 academic year SMHS will be provided in over 700 public schools across South Carolina. Last year over 16,000 of SC’s public school students received SMHS.

Masters-level Mental Health Professionals (MHPs), specializing in the provision of school-based mental health care, provide SMHS year-round utilizing Evidence-Based Practices. MHPs assist students, families and schools in developing comprehensive behavioral healthcare plans to address needs that may interfere with student educational success and overall wellbeing. MHP’s promote whole-school wellness and support school leadership as they navigate the intersection of social, emotional, and academic outcomes of students. SMHS provide non-stigmatizing and easily accessible services to children and their families in the school setting.
