Northern Rivers Partners With School Districts To Offer School-based Behavioral Health



School is hard. Being a teenager is hard. These things are even harder when a kid is struggling with behavioral health issues. One in five youths between ages 13 and 18 have or will have a serious mental illness. One in ten has a mood disorder, one in ten has a behavior or conduct disorder, and one in eleven has an anxiety disorder.

That’s why Northern Rivers has partnered with districts throughout the region, including Albany, Schenectady, Ballston Spa, Queensbury, and our newest partners in Cohoes, to open School-Based Behavioral Health Centers.

These centers are Northern Rivers-staffed, NYS office of Mental Health licensed mental health clinics, located right in the schools. We’re there every day, even when school isn’t in session. And we’re on call for our clients and their families 24/7/365.

When a family decides it’s time to get help, they give us a call. Rather than waiting weeks for an appointment somewhere else at a time that might not work, here their child just has to walk down the hall.
