AWL’s partnership with Cincinnati Children’s provides students greater access to mental health services. As the complexity of students’ mental health needs increase, so does the need for more acute care. Therapeutic intervention requires specialized training and licensure, and therapists from Cincinnati Children's are credentialed to provide treatment.
The partnership with Cincinnati Children’s and their services does not require any financial support from the district. Therapy costs for students and families engaging in services are covered through private insurance, Medicaid, or private pay options. Mindpeace and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital are committed to assisting families through any barrier to accessing care, including finances.
Parents, teachers, and school counselors can make student referrals for service. Students can also self-refer for services. Ultimately, the decision to move forward with therapeutic services is up to the family.
Children’s Hospital will also work with our staff to ensure proper education and training on mental health services.
