Testimonials

"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

-Shannon McParland, Principal, Sioux Trail Elementary

In-School

School-Based Therapy

Our school-based services address school success, truancy, mental health and chemical dependency through support, advocacy and case management. Being on-site means our staff is more available for our young clients and for school faculty and staff who might need to refer a student in emotional distress. We also work with the students' families to overcome barriers to success in their personal lives and in school, which has shown marked improvements in attendance, behavior and academic success.

Where is it offered?
Our program counselors reach students and their families in many area schools and communities including Richfield, Edina, St. Louis Park, Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan area schools, Mound-Westonka, Wayzata, Eden Prairie, Bloomington, and District 287, a special needs district located in the western suburbs.

To learn more about our school-based work, please contact us at 763-746-2411 or at info@headway.org.

This service area is partially supported by the Park Nicollet Foundation.
