Therapeutic Supports

At Mason City Schools, we believe in educating the whole child by helping students believe in who they are and who they can become by providing supports to foster their educational and social-emotional learning.  We believe in building meaningful relationships with every student and helping them take care of themselves mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Our partnerships with Mindpeace, 1N5, Grant Us Hope, Joshua's Place, and Cincinnati Children's Hospital support these goals by providing access to therapeutic supports and services for students and families. 

Cincinnati Children's HospitalAll of our schools are also serviced by therapists from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.  CCHMC is honored to partner with Mason City Schools to improve access to care within the community.  School based mental health services offer individual therapy services to students in the school setting.  This optional and confidential service is offered in addition to existing services provided by school counselors and psychologists.  Independently licensed clinicians deliver these services in the school setting and are trained to work with various challenges facing youth, such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, major life changes and difficulty with social relationships.
School-based therapists are available to provide care either through sessions held during the school day or through telemedicine based on family preference.  For those families that select telemedicine services, the patient will receive a secure link that they can access on their computer or tablet to have a video session with their provider.  You will still receive the same level of care from our providers as you'd receive in an in-person clinic visit.

All types of sessions are billed to the student's medical insurance.  CCHMC accepts a wide range of insurance carriers, and families are encouraged to check with their providers about the specifics of their coverage.  Assistance may be available for families experiencing financial difficulty.

Parents, teachers, and students can contact school counselors to make student referrals for services.  The decision to participate in therapeutic services is ultimately that of the student's family.  To discuss services available or with questions regarding services, contact your child's grade level counselor or prevention and wellness designer for assistance.
