Child and Adolescent Mental Health
At the South Texas Health System, we acknowledge that stress and personal experiences can impact a student’s mental health and challenge them both emotionally and behaviorally. Stress may also interfere with a student’s school performance and socialization.
Stressors may include:
- Academic stress
- Social stress/peer pressure
- Conflict with peers
- Family stressors
- Traumatic events
- Death of a family member or friend
- Drug use
Whether experiencing hardships or grieving a loss, the School-Based Counseling Program of South Texas Health System Behavioral can help your child process events, develop interpersonal skills and resiliency, and identify positive coping methods through personalized counseling.
Convenient and Confidential
Counseling services are provided on campus and in a private setting to promote active participation and engagement. Families are encouraged to communicate with therapists to enhance communication and understanding.
